Newman Ferrara LLP Announces That A Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Limited

Newman Ferrara LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Limited (“Longwei”) (NYSE MKT: LPH) against Longwei and certain of its executive officers, alleging violations of federal securities laws.

The Lead Plaintiff will direct the litigation on behalf of the other class members. The Court will select the Lead Plaintiff from among applicants claiming the largest investment losses.

Longwei is a China-based energy company engaged in the transporting, storing, and selling of finished petroleum products. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Longwei and certain of its executive officers issued materially false and misleading statements regarding Longwei’s business operations and financial performance.
