The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the Company’s failure to disclose in connection with the Company’s stock offerings on or about July 17, 2008, May 13, 2009 and/or October 22, 2009 that the Company had incorrectly accounted for certain impairment charges and deferred income taxes and that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls such that the Company’s financial statements were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and contained untrue statements and material omissions at all relevant times. According to the complaint, after, on March 11, 2010, the Company disclosed that its full year 2008 and quarterly 2009 financial statements should no longer be relied upon and would need to be restated, the value of GMX shares declined significantly.
