According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period issued materially false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company's senior officials were in non-compliance with the Company's corporate governance directives and Code of Ethics; (2) as a result, the Company was subject to investigation and disciplinary action by various governmental and regulatory authorities; (3) the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading as they contained direct references to the Company's Code of Ethics, and statements regarding its compliance with regulations and internal governance policies; (4) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; (5) the SOX certifications signed by Eletrobras' senior management were materially false and misleading as senior management was aware of "any fraud, whether or not material"; and (6), as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
