CIE INVESTOR ALERT - Andrews & Springer LLC Is Investigating Cobalt International Energy Inc. For Possible Securities Fraud Violations
WILMINGTON, Del. --(Business Wire)--
& Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm
focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating Cobalt (News - Alert)
International Energy Inc. ("Cobalt" or the "Company") (NYSE: CIE) for
possible violations of securities laws relating to the U.S. Securities &
Exchange Commission's ("SEC (News - Alert)") announcement today that it plans on
charging the Company with violations of securities laws.
Today, on August 5, 2014, Cobalt announced that it received a "Wells
Notice" from the SEC that alleges that the Company violated securities
laws. The SEC's investigation, dating back to 2011, concerns whether the
Company violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in Angola, one of
Cobalt's biggest regions for investment and exploration. Cobalt has
several offshore blocks in Angola, where the Company is finishing an
appraisal well. Two of these blocks, the Company was assigned to partner
with Angolan contractor Nazaki Oil and Gaz SA. In 2010, Cobalt became
aware of allegations concerning certain senior Angolan government
officials that were connected with Nazaki. In 2011, the SEC opened an
investigation into these allegations. As a result of this news, Cobalt's
share price fell 10.96% today.
Given this information, Andrews & Springer LLC is preparing a class
action lawsuit as a result. If you own shares of Cobalt and want to
