On April 14, 2011, a Class Action Complaint was filed against Puda Coal, Inc. in the Central District of California. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period Defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose, among other things: that the Company's Chairman, had transferred ownership/shares of SPCG to himself through a series of transactions; (49% of SPCG were sold); that, as a result, Puda did not possess the ownership interests in SPCG that the Company claimed to possess; (4) that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On July 27, 2011, the Court issued an Order transferring this case to the Southern District of New York.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
