BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire -08/26/11)- Saxena White P.A. has filed a class action lawsuit against Ener1, Inc. ("Ener1" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: HEV - News) and certain of its officers. The securities class action in the United States Southern District Court of New York is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Ener1 securities between January 10, 2011 and August 15, 2011, inclusive (the "Class Period").
On August 15, 2011, Ener1 disclosed that the Company's financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010 and for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2011 should no longer be relied upon and should be restated. The determination was made following an assessment of certain accounting matters related to the loans receivable owed to Ener1 by Think Holdings and accounts receivable owed to Ener1 by Think Global held by the Company, and the timing of the recognition of the impairment charge related to the Company's investment in Think Holdings originally recorded during the quarter ended March 31, 2011.
