("Advanced Emission" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: ADES) (CUSIP: 00770C101) Investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 237. The investigation concerns whether Advanced Emissions and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. On March 13, 2014, the Company announced in a Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Form 8-K filing that, "the Company is currently reviewing its accounting practices, particularly its methods of recognizing revenue for its Emission Control business segment contracts.
