According to the complaint, TechnipFMC provides oilfield services. The company offers subsea, surface, onshore, and offshore solutions for oil and gas projects. TechnipFMC serves customers worldwide. TechnipFMC was formed through the merger of FMC Technologies Inc. and French oil-services Technip SA.
The Class Period commences on April 27, 2017, when TechnipFMC issued a press release and filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC, announcing certain of the company’s financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.
The complaint alleges that, on July 24, 2017, post-market, TechnipFMC issued a press release and filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC, announcing that the company would restate its financial statements as of March 31, 2017, as these statements could no longer be relied upon. The press release stated, in part, that the company “determined that a material weakness existed as of March 31, 2017 relating to the rates used in calculations of foreign currency effects on certain of the Company’s engineering and construction projects.”
Following this news, TechnipFMC’s share price fell $0.48, or 1.71%, to close at $27.56 on July 25, 2017.
The complaint alleges that the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) TechnipFMC had a material weakness in its internal control over rates used in the calculations of the foreign currency effects on certain of its engineering and construction projects; (ii) accordingly, the company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, TechnipFMC’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you are a member of the class described above, you may no later than October 2, 2017 move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff of the class, if you so choose.
A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
