The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company overstated the number of Intelligent Media Kiosks (“Kiosks”) deployed in China, that these Kiosks were inundated with pirated movies, and that a Company subsidiary had issued RMB 100 million ($16.4 million) in bonds to Chinese investors. According to the complaint, following a November 14, 2013 report by Alfredlittle.com that revealed that the Company was overstating the number of Kiosks and that these Kiosks were filled with pirated material and the November 18, 2013 report by Geoinvesting.com that revealed the Company’s bond offering, the value of FAB shares declined significantly.
