Attorney Advertising--Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Powell Industries, Inc. (“Powell” or the “Company”) (NASDAQGS:POWL), concerning whether the company and certain of its officers and directors have violated federal securities laws.

On November 8, 2011, Powell announced it would restate its financial results for the second and third quarter of 2011 and that these statements should no longer be relied upon because of accounting errors that occurred at Powell Canada relating to the inaccurate recording of customer change orders, and an erroneous journal entry recorded in accounts payable, incorrect close-out of costs on certain jobs and the application of an incorrect manufacturing overhead rate, all of which caused earnings to be overstated in the respective quarters. On this news, the company's shares tumbled more than 18 percent in aftermarket trading.
