The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, SAEX and its senior executives presented false and misleading financial statements by failing to consolidate the results of Alaska Seismic Ventures, LLC (“ASV”), an entity in which the Company had a controlling financial interest, in its financial statements. These accounting abuses led to the Company disclosing: (i) the existence of SEC and internal investigations into the Company’s financial reporting; (ii) the need for SAEX to restate all of its financial statements covering 2015 through 2018; (iii) CEO Jeffrey Hastings had been placed on administrative leave; and (iv) CFO and General Counsel Brent Whitely had been fired.
When this news entered the market, the lawsuit alleges that investors suffered damages.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and whether SAEX’s management was cooking the books,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
