INVESTOR ALERT: Class Action Lawsuit Against Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. Filed by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP
LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--
Binkow & Goldberg LLP, representing investors of Ocean
Power Technologies, Inc. ("Ocean Power Technologies" or the
"Company") (NASDAQ:OPTT), has filed a class action lawsuit in the United
States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of a
class (the "Class") comprising all purchasers of Ocean Power
Technologies securities between January 14, 2014 and June 9, 2014,
inclusive (the "Class Period").
Please contact Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, toll-free at (888) 773-9224
or at (212) 682-5340, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss this matter.
Ocean Power Technologies engages in the development and
commercialization of proprietary systems that generate electricity by
harnessing the renewable energy of ocean waves, primarily in the United
States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The Complaint alleges that
defendants may have misstated the nature and/or circumstances of an
agreement between the Australian Renewable EnergyAgency and Victorian
Wave Partners Pty Ltd - a project-specific operating entity wholly-owned
by the Company's subsidiary - related to a planned wave power station
project off the coast of Australia. As a result, defendants' statements
concerning the Victorian Wave Partners project, and positive statements
about Ocean Power's business, operations and prospects, were materially
false and misleading or lacked a reasonable basis.
On June 10, 2014, the Company disclosed that on June 9, 2014, Charles F.
Dunleavy was terminated as the chief executive officer of Ocean Power
Technologies. The Company also disclosed that the board of directors
appointed a Special Committee, composed of outside directors and the
interim chief executive officer, which will retain outside counsel to
assist in an investigation into the agreement between Victorian Wave
Partners and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and related public
statements concerning the project. Following this news, the price of
Ocean Power Technologies shares dropped approximately 34%, to close on
June 10, 2014, at $1.63 per share, on unusually heavy volume.
