The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: KNDI) who purchased shares between November 15, 2013 and March 13, 2017. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the complaint alleges that (1) certain areas in Kandi’s previously issued financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the first three quarters for the year ended December 31, 2016 required adjustment; (2) in turn, Kandi lacked effective controls over financial reporting; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about Kandi’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On November 14, 2016, Kandi announced the resignation of Cheng Wang as its CFO. On this news, shares of Kandi fell to a close at $3.50 per share on November 14, 2016, damaging investors. On March 14, 2017, Kandi revealed that its previously issued financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the first three quarters for the year ended December 31, 2016 will need to be restated. On this news shares of Kandi fell approximately 7% to close at $4.05 per share on March 14, 2017, further damaging investors.
