The lawsuit was originally filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against Ocean Power Technologies Inc over alleged violations of Federal Securities Laws in connection with certain allegedly false and misleading statements made between January 14, 2014 and June 9, 2014. According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Ocean Power Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:OPTT) common shares between January 14, 2014 and June 9, 2014, that the defendants violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The plaintiff claims that defendants may have misstated the nature and/or circumstances of an agreement between the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and Victorian Wave Partners Pty Ltd - a project-specific operating entity wholly-owned by the Company's subsidiary - related to a planned wave power station project off the coast of Australia and that as a result, defendants' statements concerning the Victorian Wave Partners project, and positive statements about Ocean Power Technologies Inc's business, operations and prospects, were allegedly materially false and misleading or lacked a reasonable basis.
