The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals violated federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose that: (1) China Automotive failed to account properly for its convertible notes issued on February 15, 2008; (2) as a result, the Company’s financial results were incorrect and not prepared in accordance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“U.S. GAAP”); and (3) the Company lacked sufficient internal financial controls.

On March 17, 2011, China Automotive declared that it expected to restate its financial statements for the 2009 fiscal year and three quarters of the 2010 fiscal year due to errors in accounting related to the Company’s convertible notes issued on February 15, 2008 and that these financial statements could no longer be relied on. Shares of China Automotive fell 13.88% to $8.81 per share in response to this unexpected announcement.
