San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/27/2022 -- A new deadline is coming up on March 15th in the lawsuit that was filed for certain investors in shares of Volkswagen AG (OTC: VWAGY) against Volkswagen AG.

Investors who purchased shares of Volkswagen AG (OTC: VWAGY) have certain options and for certain investors are short and strict deadlines running. Deadline: March 15, 2022. OTC: VWAGY investors should contact the Shareholders Foundation at or call +1(858) 779 - 1554.

On March 29, 2021, CNBC published an article entitled "VW accidentally leaks new name for its U.S. operations: Voltswagen" stating that "Volkswagen is expected to change the name of its operations in the U.S. to 'Voltswagen of America,' emphasizing the German automaker's electric vehicle efforts" and that "[a] now unpublished press release called the change a 'public declaration of the company's future-forward investment in e-mobility.'"

Then on March 30, 2021, the Wall Street Journal published an article entitled "No, Volkswagen Isn't Rebranding Itself Voltswagen" which stated "[t]he name change stunt comes as the company is eager to get U.S. consumers jazzed about the ID. 4, which went on sale in U.S. showrooms this month." The article also stated that "problem for VW is that everyone took it seriously, creating confusion about the company's intentions and moving the shares[.]" Due to the earlier news, the article stated "[i]n the U.S., the company's American depositary receipts rose as much as 12% Tuesday before sliding near the close after the company confirmed the name change was a joke, closing up 9%."

On April 1, 2021, Forbes published an article, entitled "Volkswagen's April Fools' Stunt Misses the Markā€”and an Opportunity to Earn Back Trust," which similarly criticized Volkswagen AG's purported name change.

Shares of Volkswagen AG (OTC: VWAGY) declined from $48.72 per share on March 17, 2021, to $30.45 per share on May 5, 2021.

The plaintiff claims that between March 29, 2021 and March 30, 2021, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the name "Voltswagen" was never going to be used by the Company's U.S. subsidiary, that the Company and its spokespeople purposefully misled reporters, even after the reporters' inquiries about whether the name change was an April Fool's joke, and that as a result, Defendants' public statements and statements to journalists were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.

Those who purchased shares of Volkswagen AG (OTC: VWAGY) have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
