BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Burke Harvey & Frankowski, LLC announces the commencement of an investigation into potential claims against the officers and directors of Molycorp, Inc. ("Molycorp" or the "Company") concerning breaches of their respective fiduciary duties to the Company. As described below, recent alleged acts of mismanagement by Molycorp officers and directors may have caused the Company to: (i) restate its previously announced financial statements and (ii) be named as a defendant in a class action lawsuit alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On August 8, 2013, the Company disclosed that its Board's Audit and Ethics Committee had determined that Molycorp's unaudited quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2013 should no longer be relied upon. The Company had misstated the reconciliation of its physical inventory to the general ledger, which resulted in a cumulative overstatement of costs of sales and understatement of current inventory of approximately $16 million. Upon the news of the restatement, Molycorp securities declined 10% in a single day's trading. We are investigating whether the officers and directors of Molycorp breached their fiduciary duties owed to the Company and its shareholders by allowing or failing to prevent the Company from misstating its financial results.
