The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company's cost of sales in its financial statements for the annual period ended December 31, 2014 were understated; (2) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over its financial reporting; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On May 6, 2015, Global Power issued a press release after close of trading announcing that it will restate its financial results for the annual period ended December 31, 2014. On that same day, the Company filed a Form 8-K with the SEC further expanding on its restatement of its financial results for the annual period ended December 31, 2014.
On this news, shares of Global Power fell $4.05 per share or over 33% to close at $8.19 per share on May 7, 2015, damaging investors.
