Levi & Korsinsky is investigating Weatherford International Ltd. (“Weatherford” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WFT) to determine whether it has violated federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements. Shares of Weatherford stock dropped over ten-percent after the Company announced on March 1, 2011 that it would restate its financial statements and delay its annual report because of accounting problems. Weatherford said it expects that it will have to make adjustments to its historical financial statements and its 2010 fourth quarter earnings, “totaling approximately $500 million for the periods from 2007 to 2010.” The need for a restatement is related to “an error in determining the tax consequences of intercompany amounts over multiple years.”
