The complaint alleges that Net 1 misrepresented or failed to disclose that the Company's practices to secure contracts in South Africa were in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and, as a result, that the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On December 4, 2012, Net 1 disclosed that it was under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, Criminal Division, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding whether Net 1 and its subsidiaries violated provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other U.S. federal criminal laws by engaging in a scheme to make corrupt payments to officials of the Government of South Africa. Then, on November 29, 2013, Net 1 disclosed that the Constitutional Court of South Africa ruled that the tender process followed by the South African Social Security Agency in awarding a contract to Net 1's wholly owned subsidiary Cash Paymaster Services (Proprietary) Limited was constitutionally invalid.
If you suffered a loss in Net 1 you have until February 24, 2014 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
