Lieff Cabraser Investigating Possible Securities Fraud At Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation

The law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP is investigating potential accounting and securities fraud at Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (“Great Lakes” or the “Company) (NASDAQ: GLDD).

Background on the Great Lakes Investigation

Located in Oak Brook, Illinois, Great Lakes is the largest provider of dredging services in the United States and a major provider of commercial and industrial demolition and remediation services. For the year ended December 31, 2012, Great Lakes reported Revenue of $687.6 million (9.6% increase from previous year), Net Loss of $2.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $60.9 million. For the year ended December 31, 2011, Great Lakes reported Revenue of $627.3 million, Net Income of $16.5 million and adjusted EBITDA $93.7 million.

On March 14, 2013, the Company disclosed it had recognized revenue in 2012 in a manner not consistent with its accounting policy. It further revealed “a failure of internal controls to detect or prevent misstatements in [its] financial statements,” which was “material to [its] results of operations for the quarterly and year-to-date periods ended June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012.” The Company disclosed a “material weakness” in its disclosure controls, described as a deficiency (or series of deficiencies) in internal controls over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of Great Lakes’ annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The Company further revealed that “2012 second and third quarter demolition segment revenues were overstated by $3.9 million and $4.3 million, respectively.”
