PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is investigating possible violations of the federal securities laws by ProPetro Holding Corp. (“ProPetro” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PUMP) and certain of its officers or directors.
If you purchased ProPetro securities and suffered losses, please contact either John Kehoe, Esq., (215) 792-6676, Ext. 801, [email protected], or Michael Yarnoff, Esq., (215) 792-6676, Ext. 804, [email protected], [email protected], to learn more about the lawsuit or the securities investigation.
On August 8, 2019, after the market closed, ProPetro issued a press release delaying its second quarter earnings conference call and quarterly report, citing an ongoing review by its audit committee.
Specifically, ProPetro announced its “. . . preliminary financial and operational results for the second quarter of 2019 and delayed its second quarter earnings conference call in order to allow additional time to complete its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2019 (the “Form 10-Q”).” [Emphasis added.]
The Company also stated that
[t]he delay in the Form 10-Q is due to an ongoing review by the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors which initially focused on the disclosure of agreements previously entered into by the Company with AFGlobal for the purchase of Durastim® hydraulic fracturing fleets and effective communications related thereto. A corrective release regarding these agreements which addressed the disclosure issue was previously issued on June 28, 2019.
As part of the review, the audit committee expanded its work to include, among other items, expense reimbursements and certain transactions involving related parties or potential conflicts of interest, as described in the Company’s current report on Form 8-K filed today, August 8, 2019. While the additional work has resulted in the reversal of certain expense reimbursements, the establishment of a disclosure committee and other improvements, the audit committee and management have not identified to date any items that would require revision or restatement of the Company’s historical financial statements. The audit committee expects to complete its review within the next 30 days. [Emphasis added.]
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $4.59 per share, or over 26%, to close at $12.75 per share on August 9, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
ProPetro shareholders who suffered losses are encouraged to contact either John Kehoe, Esq., (215) 792-6676, Ext. 801, [email protected], or Michael Yarnoff, Esq., (215) 792-6676, Ext. 804, [email protected], [email protected], to learn more about the lawsuit or the securities investigation.
