|Class Period:||April 7, 2006 to February 7, 2007|
|Lead Plaintiff Deadline:||Apr-10-07|
|Court:||Central District, CA|
New Century and certain of its officers and directors are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements in violation of Section 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. Particularly, late on February 7, 2007, New Century announced that it will have to restate its consolidated financial results for the first three quarters of 2006 to correct errors the Company discovered in its application of generally accepted accounting principles regarding the Company's allowance for loan repurchase losses.
As a result of this shocking news, New Century's stock collapsed $10.92 per share to close at $19.24 per share on February 8, 2007, a one-day decline of 36%, on volume of 25 million shares, 17 times the average three month volume.
