Filing Date: December 08, 2014

According to the law firm press release, the lawsuit alleges Petrobras issued materially false and misleading financial information to investors. Specifically, the suit alleges that Petrobras failed to disclose a high level of corruption at the cPetroleo Brasileiro S.A. - Petrobras : Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. - Petrobras : American Depositary Sharesompany, including a multi-billion dollar money-laundering bribery scheme. In addition, Petrobras is alleged to have overstated its property, plant, and equipment line item on its balance sheet resulting from overstated amounts paid on contracts that were carried as assets on the balance sheet.

Following several arrests of senior level Petrobras management, and disclosure that Petrobras may potentially have to adjust its historical financial statements to recognize the overpricing of construction contracts, Petrobras’ share price fell $8.88 per share or approximately 46% to $10.50 per share on November 24, 2014, damaging investors.

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.
