NEW YORK, December 4, 2017 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Katanga Mining Limited (OTC BB: KATFF) securities between February 11, 2016 and November 19, 2017 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until January 29, 2018 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Katanga engaged in improper accounting practices; (2) there were material weaknesses in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting; and (3) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On November 20, 2017, the Company issued a press release revealing the completion of the restatement of certain of its financial statements. Specifically, the Company disclosed that certain “material weaknesses” had been demonstrated in its internal control over financial reporting.
Following the announcement, Katanga’s share price fell from $0.98 per share on November 17, 2017 to a closing price of $0.75 on November 22, 2017—a $0.23 or a 23.47% drop over three trading days.
