NEW YORK, July 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Pacific Coast Oil Trust ("Pacific Coast" or the "Company") (ROYT).
A complaint has been filed in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Pacific Coast securities pursuant or traceable to the registration statements that became effective on May 2, 2012 and September 19, 2013 and the prospectuses issued thereto (the "Class Period").
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the action alleges that defendants issued false and/or misleading statements regarding the expiration of Pacific Coast's capital expenditures and hedge contracts.
On September 18, 2013, Pacific Coast announced a Secondary Offering. Shortly thereafter, on September 24, 2013, the Company announced its October 2013 cash distribution, in which the monthly distribution significantly declined as a result of increased capital expenditures and lower-than-average realized oil prices.
Following this news, the price of Pacific Coast shares declined from the Secondary Offering price of $17.10 per share to recently trade at approximately $13.00 per share.
