NEW YORK, April 17, 2019 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Whitestone REIT (NYSE: WSR) securities between May 9, 2018 and February 27, 2019 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until June 17, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) the company lacked effective internal control over financial reporting; (2) Whitestone was incorrectly recognizing assets and liabilities associated with its contribution to Pillarstone Capital REIT Operating Partnership LP; (3) the company’s financial statements for the fiscal year 2018 were overstating revenues; (4) the company’s financial statements for the fiscal year 2018 could no longer be relied upon; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, the company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
