“Shares of Puda Coal plunged 34% when an analyst accused the company’s chairman of embezzling funds,” securities lawyer Hamilton Lindley said. “A preliminary investigation by the company into those charges ‘supports the allegation that there were transfers by Mr. Zhao in subsidiary ownership that were inconsistent with disclosures made by the Company in securities filings.’ Our proposed Puda Coal investor lawsuit seeks to ensure that the company is managed in a manner that is beneficial to all the stockholders and that the investors are made whole.”
