Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr. announce the commencement of an investigation into Weatherford International, Ltd. (“Weatherford” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WFT) to determine whether it has violated federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to its shareholders.
Shares of the Company fell over 10% yesterday, after the Company announced that it would restate its financial statements and delay its annual report because of accounting problems. Weatherford said it expects that it will have to make adjustments to its historical financial statements and its 2010 fourth quarter earnings, “totaling approximately $500 million for the periods from 2007 to 2010.” Most of the problems related to “an error in determining the tax consequences of intercompany amounts over multiple years.”
