The Complaint charges Kohlberg and certain of the Company’s executive officers and/or directors with violations of federal securities laws. Kohlberg is an investment company which originates, structures, finances and manages a portfolio of term loans, mezzanine investments and selected equity securities in middle market companies. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that their public statements concerning Kohlberg’s operations and financial performance were materially false and misleading. Specifically, plaintiff alleges the Company reported inflated earnings that violated Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) by failing to properly account for the fair value of its investment portfolio under FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 157 - Fair Value Measurements.
On November 9, 2009, Kohlberg announced its auditor, Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte”), raised questions concerning the Company’s methodology and process in valuing its loan portfolio under GAAP. As a result of these questions, the Company stated it would not be able to timely file with the SEC its third quarter results for the period ended September 30, 2009. As a result, the Company’s stock price fell $0.56 per share, or more than 10%, to close at $4.96.
