NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Echo Global Logistics, Inc. ("Echo" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ECHO). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Echo and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On September 8, 2016, Spruce Point Capital Management published a report (the "Spruce Point Report") asserting that Echo's stock is significantly overvalued. Among other issues, the Spruce Point Report stated that Echo has overstated its purported "proprietary technology advantages," that Echo's recent headquarter lease expansion placed Echo in violation of a debt covenant, and that "rampant accounting and financial concerns" are "evident."
On this news, Echo stock has fallen as much as $2.19, or 8.22%, during intraday trading on September 8, 2016.
