LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Law Offices of Frank R. Cruz reminds investors of the upcoming November 24, 2020 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who purchased Golar LNG Limited (“Golar” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GLNG) securities between April 30, 2020 and September 24, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
If you are a shareholder who suffered a loss, click here to participate.
On September 24, 2020, media reported that the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of Golar’s joint venture, Hygo Energy Transition Ltd. (“Hygo”), was involved in a bribery network investigated in Brazil’s Operation Car Wash.
On this news, Golar’s share price fell $3.28, or 32%, to close at $6.86 per share on September 24, 2020, thereby damaging investors.
The complaint filed alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that certain employees, including Hygo’s Chief Executive Officer, had bribed third parties, thereby violating anti-bribery policies; (2) as a result, the Company was likely to face regulatory scrutiny and possible penalties; (3) as a result of the foregoing reputational harm, Hygo’s valuation ahead of its IPO would be significantly impaired; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
