About the Lawsuit
Top Ships and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
Throughout 2017, Top Ships engaged in a stock scheme of selling tens of millions of its shares to Kalani Investments Limited at a deeply discounted rate and then filing registration statements enabling Kalani to resell the shares. As the selloff caused the share price to decline, Top Ships would then artificially raise the price via a reverse stock split, causing shares to be merged.
As a result of this scheme, the price of Top Ships’ shares has plummeted by more than 99%.
