On April 16, 2013, Magnum Hunter disclosed that at the direction of the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors, Magnum Hunter had dismissed its auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PwC"), after PwC advised the Company of material weaknesses in the Company's internal accounting controls. The complaints allege that as a result of this news and the April 22, 2013 confirmation that PwC had concluded the Company's previously reported financial reports did not fairly or reliably reflect its actual financial results, the price of Magnum Hunter's publicly traded securities declined on high trading volume to close at $2.50 per share.About Morgan & MorganMorgan & Morgan is one of the nation's largest 200 law firms.
