The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants failed to disclose that the Company understated cost of sales and goodwill, overstated inventory balances and its value added tax credits, and improperly recognized revenue in connection with "bill and hold" transactions for aerial transmission projects in Brazil.
In an October 15, 2013 SEC filing, the Company announced that due to certain accounting errors, the Company's previously issued financial statements for the fiscal years 2008 through 2012, all quarterly filings from 2008 to 2012, and for the three fiscal months ended March 29, 2013 should no longer be relied upon.
If you acquired the securities of the defendants during the Class Period you may, no later than the Lead Plaintiff Deadline shown above, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff through counsel of your choice. You may also choose to remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff must meet certain requirements.
