NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Intercloud Systems Inc. (ICLD) shares were down 2.4% to $7.20 in aftermarket trading Wednesday, following a precipitous drop for the telecom infrastructure company throughout the day.
The stock closed down 7.5% during the day after three separate law firms sent out press releases stating that they were filing lawsuits against the company on behalf of shareholders. Levi & Korinsky, LLP's lawsuit alleges that InterCloud "made materially false and misleading statements and/or omitted materially adverse facts regarding the company's business, operations, and prospects."
According to the complaints, InterCloud hired a promotional firm, The Dream Team Group (DTG), to promote the stock after the company's IPO. "DTG, along with its affiliates and other third parties, published articles touting the company's stock without disclosing that they were paid promoters for the company, a violation of Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933," law firm Rigrodsky & Long, PA said.
