NEW YORK, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at A123 Systems Inc. ("A123" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: AONE).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the A123 was experiencing severe manufacturing deficiencies at its Livonia, Michigan manufacturing facilities; (2) the Company's manufacturing problems resulted in the production of defective prismatic cells and the premature failure of battery modules and packs; and (3) as a result of faulty products, A123 would be required to recall and replace product parts at substantial cost to the Company.
On March 26, 2012, A123 announced that it had launched a campaign to replace defective battery modules and packs due to problems with the prismatic cells produced at its Livonia, Michigan factory. On this surprising disclosure, the Company's share price declined by $0.21 per share, or 12%, to close at $1.49 per share on heavy volume. On March 28, 2012, an analyst at Deutsche Bank wrote that the Company could have difficulty raising capital and could lose contracts as a result of the product recall. On this extremely disappointing news, the price of the company's common stock declined by an additional $0.18 per share, or 13%, to close at $1.22 per share on March 28, 2012.Request more information now by clicking here: www.faruqilaw.com/AONE.
