About the Lawsuit
Prospect Capital and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On May 6, 2014, Prospect Capital disclosed that the SEC informed the Company that its wholly owned companies were investment companies and for accounting purposes needed to be consolidated. The Company also disclosed that may have to restate prior financial statements to resolve the consolidation issue, which could potentially decrease its historical net investment income.
On this news, the price of Prospect Capital's shares fell by over 5%.
