The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company securities during the Class Period. Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that TCP’s Chairman, defendant Ellis Yan (“Yan”), had made improper payments with his personal funds relating to TCP’s business and that improper relationships existed between Yan and the Company’s Vice-Chairman, Zhaoling Yan, and certain vendors.

According to the complaint, following TCP’s November 5, 2015 announcement that it would delay the release of the Company’s third-quarter financial results due to a pending investigation by the Audit Committee of TCP’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) concerning the scope and propriety of payments made by its Chairman with his personal funds relating to TCP’s business, and whether relationships exist between Yan and Zhaoling Yan and certain vendors, that TCP did not anticipate filing its third-quarter Form 10-Q by the extended due date of November 23, 2015 and that the Audit Committee had retained independent legal and accounting advisors in connection with its investigation, the value of TCP shares declined significantly.
