NEW YORK, June 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors of UniTek Global Services, Inc. ("UniTek" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:UNTK) of the June 18, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired UniTek securities between May 18, 2011 and April 12, 2013 (the "Class Period"). The action alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the Company's financial statements did not provide a fair presentation of the Company's finances and operations; (2) Pinnacle Wireless, one of UniTek's subsidiaries, had engaged in fraudulent activities that resulted in improper revenue recognition; and (3) the Company's internal accounting controls were deficient and permitted the improper recognition of revenue.
On April 12, 2013, UniTek disclosed that it will restate its financial results for the interim periods ended March 2012, June 2012 and September 29, 2012, as well as for the fiscal year ended December 2011 and the interim period ended October 1, 2011. UniTek also announced that it had terminated Ronald Lejman, its CFO and Treasurer, Kevin McClelland, controller and chief accounting officer, and several other employees. On this shocking news, the Company's share price lost roughly half its value, falling from a close of $3.01 on April 12, 2013 to a close of $1.52 on April 15, 2013 on exceptionally high volume.
