Background on the Turquoise Hill Securities Class Litigation

The action charges Turquoise Hill and certain of its officers and directors with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Turquoise Hill is an international mineral exploration and development company with headquarters in Vancouver, Canada.

The action alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding Turquoise Hill’s financial performance and business prospects and overstated the Company’s reported revenue, specifically for its SouthGobi Resources Ltd. (“SouthGobi”) subsidiary, which produces coal at the Ovoot Tolgoi mine in Mongolia. As a result of defendants’ false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

On November 8, 2013, Turquoise Hill announced that the Company would be restating its consolidated financial results for the years ended December 31, 2010, 2011, 2012 and the affected quarters, including 2013, due to errors related to the Company’s timing of revenue recognition from sales to certain distributors as a result of SouthGobi’s decision to change the way it recognizes revenue. The Company further disclosed that some sales were booked after delivery to the customers’ stockpiles at the Ovoot Tolgoi mine, rather than upon customer collection. Turquoise Hill additionally disclosed that the financial statements for the periods listed above should no longer be relied upon. On this news, the Company’s stock price declined approximately 3%.
