Sinovel Says Company Is Under Investigation by Chinese Regulator

May 30 (Bloomberg) -- Sinovel Wind Group Co., China’s third-biggest maker of wind turbines, said it’s being investigated for suspected violations of securities laws and regulations.

The company received a notice from China Securities Regulatory Commission on the decision to start the probe, and will cooperate, according to a filing to the Shanghai Stock Exchange yesterday. The statement didn’t provide more details.

Sinovel, based in Beijing, in March revised down 2011 profit by 22 percent to 607.4 million yuan ($99.1 million) due to an accounting error.

The turbine company also is embroiled in a legal dispute with Devens, Massachusetts-based American Superconductor Corp., which is seeking more than $1.2 billion in damages in Chinese courts from its former largest customer. AMSC accused Sinovel of stealing its technology and violating sales contracts.
