Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC Announces Investigation Into Weatherford International Ltd.

Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is investigating potential violations of the federal securities laws by Weatherford International Ltd. (“Weatherford” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WFT). The investigation focuses on whether a series of statements regarding Weatherford’s business, its prospects and its operations were materially false and misleading at the time they were made. Specifically, the investigation focuses on, among other things, the Company’s announcement that its financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2007, 2008, and 2009 and for the quarters ending March 31, 2010, June 30, 2010, and September 30, 2010, should no longer be relied upon. The Company stated in a March 1, 2011 filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission that it will make adjustments to its historical financial statements and 2010 fourth quarter earnings “totaling $500 million for the periods from 2007 to 2010,” primarily to correct “an error in determining the tax consequences of intercompany amounts over multiple years.”
