Finkelstein & Krinsk LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Maxwell
SAN DIEGO, April 23, 2013
SAN DIEGO, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Finkelstein & Krinsk LLP of San
Diego, CA, has filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the
Southern District of California at San Diego on behalf of a class (the
"Class") comprised of purchasers of Maxwell Technologies, Inc. ("Maxwell" or
the "Company") (NASDAQ: MXWL), common stock from April 28, 2011 through March
7, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The Complaint alleges that Maxwell
and certain of its executive officers issued false and/or misleading
statements concerning the Company's business, operations and prospects.
Maxwell announced on March 7, 2013 that its earlier financial statements
contained in its annual report for the year ended December 31, 2011, and
unaudited quarterly reports in 2011 and 2012, should no longer be relied upon
because of erroneous financial statements. These errors relate to the timing
of recognition of revenue from sales. Maxwell also disclosed that "as a result
of its investigation, certain employees were terminated and the Sr. Vice
President of Sales and Marketing resigned...." On this news, the Company's
shares declined $1.01 per share (on March 8, 2013), to close at $8.10 per
share -- a one-day decline of 11%.
The Complaint alleges that Maxwell made false statements and didn't disclose:
(1) that employees of the Company were making arrangements with distributors
regarding payment terms for sales that were improper; (2) that these
arrangements were not shared with Maxwell's accounting department; (3) that
these arrangements were not considered when Maxwell recorded revenue; (4) that
the arrangements included unspecified pricing; (5) that collection was not
reasonably assured for certain transactions; (6) that Maxwell nonetheless was
improperly recognizing revenue; (7) that the Company's financial results were
therefore not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting
Principles ("GAAP"); (8) that the Company lacked adequate internal and
financial controls; and (9) as a result of the above, the Company's earlier
statements were materially wrong.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages for purchasers of Maxwell common stock
during the Class Period. Finkelstein & Krinsk LLP, the San Diego law firm is a
highly regarded and experienced law firm litigating securities cases
