In a recently filed federal class action complaint, Maxwell Technologies and
certain of its officers were charged with violating certain provisions of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that
defendants’ misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (a) Maxwell had
overstated its revenues and earnings in 2011 and 2012 in violation of
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (b) Maxwell had reported revenues
prior to the time the sales price was fixed and/or collection was reasonably
assured; and (c) Maxwell’s internal accounting controls were deficient and
permitted the premature recognition of revenue, leading to materially
misstated financial results. According to the complaint, when these facts were
finally disclosed, Maxwell Technologies’ shares dropped substantially.

“Recent revelations about alleged improper business practices and procedures
regarding key aspects of Maxwell Technologies’ business and other misleading
financial statements have prompted the firms to investigate possible breaches
of fiduciary duties and other violations of state law by Maxwell Technologies’
officers and directors. Based on our investigation, we are prepared to pursue
litigation to preserve the company and the value of Maxwell Technologies stock
for all shareholders,” said shareholder rights attorney Patrick Powers.
