NEW YORK, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholders’ rights law firm with offices in New York, Georgia, and Los Angeles, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased shares of Aegean Marine Petroleum Networks, Inc. (“ANW,” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ANW) securities between April 28, 2016 and June 4, 2018, both dates inclusive.
On June 4, 2018, ANW issued a press release reporting that its Audit Committee found that “approximately $200 million of accounts receivable owed to the Company at December 31, 2017 will need to be written off.” The Company attributed this to improper accounting processes that were “in contravention to the [its] normal policies and procedures.” The following day, ANW shares plummeted from their June 4 opening price of $3.00 to $0.95 per ANW share.
The complaint alleges that ANW failed to maintain effective internal controls over the Company’s operations and financial reporting, resulting in the issuance of materially false and misleading financial statements.
