NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 17, 2018 / Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP announces that a federal securities class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas on behalf of investors that purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Zion" or the "Company") (ZN) between March 12, 2018, and July 10, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The filed Complaint alleges that Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

  • Zion was either already or was likely to soon become the subject of a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation; and
  • (2) as a result, Zion's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On July 11, 2018, Zion disclosed that the Company had received a subpoena to produce documents from the Fort Worth office of the SEC, informing Zion of the existence of a non-public, fact-finding inquiry into the Company. On this news, Zion's share price fell $0.44 per share, or 11%, to close at $3.56 per share on July 12, 2018.

Subsequently, on the evening of August 16, 2018, after the close of trading, the Company announced that its Megiddo-Jezreel #1 well in Israel is not commercially successful. Intraday, the stock was trading down over 25%, trading at $1.85 per share. This announcement clearly shocked the market since on February 13, 2018, the Company announced that they found "clear evidence" of oil and gas in the deeper portion of the well. On that day, the stock closed at $4.30, up $2.00.
