The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Celadon Group Inc. (NYSE: CGI) who purchased shares between January 27, 2016 and May 2, 2017. The action, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the complaint alleges that (i) CGI's equity contribution to its joint venture with Element Financial Corp. was $68.2 million, rather than the $100 million contribution the Company reported in its public filings; (ii) the Company is being actively investigated by the SEC; and (iii) that as a result of the foregoing, CGI's publicly disseminated financial statements were materially false and misleading.
On April 5, 2017 a report issued by Prescience Point Research Group charged that "CGI has used off-balance sheet entities…and manipulative accounting practices to hide its insolvent condition from investors and creditors." Then on April 19, 2017, Prescience Point Research published another report in which they provided correspondence from the SEC indicating that CGI was under investigation.
Shareholders have until June 19, 2017 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
