About the Lawsuit

Eletrobas and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

The action alleges that Eletrobas's senior officials were in non-compliance with its corporate governance directives and Code of Ethics, resulting in investigations and disciplinary actions by various governmental and regulatory authorities, and, as a result, Eletrobas's financial statements were materially false and misleading.

On April 30, 2015, Eletrobras announced that due to news reports about bribery taking place at its subsidiary, the Company would not be filing its Form 20-F on time and needed the additional time to make sure the proper auditing procedures were being followed. On this news, the price of Eletrobas's ADSs plummeted.
