Law Offices of Howard G. Smith continues its investigation on behalf of Top Ships Inc. ("Top Ships" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TOPS) investors concerning the Company and its officers' possible violations of federal securities laws.

The investigation focuses on allegations that Top Ships' CEO, Evangelos J. Pistolis, caused the Company to engage in a series of manipulative share issuance and sales transactions with Kalani Investments Limited ("Kalani") and related entities. Mr. Pistolis would purportedly cause Top Ships to sell common shares to Kalani at a significant discount compared to market price and would then file registration statements so that Kalani could resell those shares into the market.
