ECOtality manufactures and sells charging systems for electric vehicles (EV), including the Minit-Charger line of fast-charge systems for off-road industrial applications. In 2009, the Company received a $100 million grant from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to manage the “EV Project” – a charging infrastructure research and EV-deployment initiative. The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants issued false and misleading statements or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company was facing an impending shutdown of funds from the DOE; (2) the Company was inappropriately recognizing revenue and drawing down expenses on its contract with DOE; (3) the Company's products contained significant design and manufacturing defects; (4) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and, (5) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
