Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating Penn West Petroleum Ltd. (“Penn West” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PWE) for possible violations of securities laws relating to the Company’s announcement today that its financial results will have to be restated.

Today, on July 30, 2014, Penn West announced that it is conducting an internal investigation of its accounting practices for the previous four fiscal years. Specifically, the Company revealed that it will restate certain past financial statements for, at a minimum, two years ending December 31, 2012 and 2013 as well as unaudited interim financial statements for the three months ending March 31, 2014 and 2013. These restatements may cause the Company to reduce capital spending plans and cash flow assumptions for 2014 and bolster its operating cost forecast. Penn West also warned investors that it has initiated discussions with its lenders because a restatement may cause the Company to violate certain covenants in loan agreements covering the Company’s debt. As a result of this news, Penn West’s share price fell 14% today.

Given this information, Andrews & Springer LLC is preparing a class action lawsuit as a result.
