The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (OTCMKTS: NSANY) American Depositary Receipts between December 10, 2013 and November 16, 2018.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) for more than a decade, Nissan had been materially understating its costs–and thus overstating profits–by paying a material portion of Ghosn’s executive compensation in the form of billions of Yen of deferred compensation that the Company was concealing from its public financial reports; (2) in so doing, Nissan was concealing from investors significant defects in its corporate governance; (3) Nissan’s overpayment of defendant Ghosn had caused it to exceed its shareholder-approved executive pay cap, thus threatening its continued stock listing; (4) Nissan lacked effective internal and reporting controls; and (5) as a result, defendants’ statements about Nissan’s business metrics, operations, and financial prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
