WASHINGTON, D.C. October 2, 2018 – Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is conducting an investigation to determine whether USA Technologies, Inc. (“USA Technologies” or the “Company”) and certain of its officers and directors made false and misleading statements and/or omissions in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
A class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey by another law firm on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT) between November 9, 2017 and September 11, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
The complaint alleges that USA Technologies and certain of its officers and directors (“Defendants”) misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) USA Technologies’ treatment of contractual arrangements in its financial statements would result in an internal investigation and delay the filing of its annual report for fiscal year 2018; (2) consequently, the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting were weak and deficient; (3) as a result, Defendants’ statements about the Company’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
The claims in this case are based on the Company’s announcement that it would not be able to file its fiscal year 2018 Form 10-K by the September 13, 2018 due date because of an ongoing Audit Committee investigation into “current and prior period matters relating to certain of the Company’s contractual arrangements, including the accounting treatment, financial reporting and internal controls related to such arrangements.” The price of USA Technologies shares fell from $15.30 to $9.20 on September 11, 2018.
Cohen Milstein encourages all investors who purchased USA Technologies common stock between November 9, 2017 and September 11, 2018, inclusive, or former employees with information concerning this matter to contact the firm.
