The class action alleges the Company issued materially false and misleading financial statements to investors. Specifically that: (a) Penn West improperly classified operating expenses as property, plant and equipment without documentary support, resulting in an overstatement of capital expenditures; (b) Penn West incorrectly classified certain operating expenses as royalty expenses; (c) Penn West lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; (d) Penn West was not in compliance with certain of its covenants under its unsecured, revolving syndicated bank facility; and (e) as a result of the foregoing, Penn West's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When these adverse facts entered the market, the price of Penn West securities dropped, damaging investors.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than October 3, 2014.
