According to the lawsuit, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that several of Prospect's wholly owned companies were required to be consolidated because they should have been accounted for as investment companies in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Therefore, Prospect's investment income and financial results were misstated and the internal and financial controls were inadequate.

Prospect revealed on May 6, 2014 that the Securities and Exchange Commission informed the Company that Prospect's wholly owned companies were investment companies and for accounting purposes needed to be consolidated. Prospect further disclosed that it would have to restate prior financial statements which had the potential to decrease the Company's historical net investment income by the amount of interest and structuring income paid by such wholly owned companies in excess of the amount of income that may be reported as dividend income based on taxable earnings and profits. After this revelation, the price of Prospect shares declined $0.54 per share, or more than 5.02%, closing at $10.20 per share on May 7, 2014, on unusually heavy volume.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must act before July 28, 2014.
