According to the Complaint, on March 3, 2014, the Company announced that it had discovered an error in its financial reporting, and discovered tens of millions in overhead expenses that it had incorrectly classified. Then, on March 18, 2014, the Company issued a press release and filed an 8-K report detailing the severity of the financial manipulations. Among other things, the 8-K informed investors that the Company’s prior financial statements for the annual periods ended December 31, 2010, 2011 and 2012 should no longer be relied upon, “as a result of (i) an error related to the presentation of non-cash stock based compensation costs in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the portion of such costs that were capitalized as part of the costs of solar energy systems leased and to be leased; and (ii) an error related to the classification of certain of the noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries after the Company concluded that certain noncontrolling interests with redemption rights should be presented in temporary equity and not permanent equity as had previously been disclosed. These matters also impacted the 2013 interim and 2012 annual and interim consolidated financial statements referred to in our Form 8-K filed on March 3, 2014.”On this news, shares in SolarCity fell almost 6%, closing at $72.70 per share on March 19, 2014, on heavy trading volume of over 8 million shares. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 27, 2014. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the proposed class may move the court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
