NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 12, 2019 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against General Electric Company ("GE" or the "Company") (GE) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired GE securities between December 27, 2017 and October 29, 2018, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/ge.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts relating to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (the "SEC") expanded investigation into the Company's accounting practices, including investigating GE's $23 billion goodwill impairment charge (the "Power Charge"). GE announced the Power Charge on October 1, 2018, and the SEC investigation began shortly after.
The truth was revealed on October 30, 2018, when GE announced that the SEC had expanded its previous investigation into its accounting practices to now include the Power Charge. GE also stated that the Department of Justice was also investigating GE. Following this news, GE stock dropped roughly 10% to close at of $10.18 per share on October 30, 2018.
