Maxwell Technologies Inc. (MXWL) Investor Lawsuit Over Alleged False and Misleading Statements Announced by Shareholders Foundation

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2013) - The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that an investor filed lawsuit against Maxwell Technologies Inc. over alleged Securities Laws violations.

The plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Maxwell Technologies Inc. shares during the period between April 28, 2011 and March 7, 2013 that the defendants issued certain allegedly materially false and misleading statements regarding Maxwell Technologies' financial performance and business prospects and overstated the Company's reported revenue.

The plaintiff says that as a result of the defendants' statements, MXWL stock traded at inflated prices between April 28, 2011 and March 7, 2013, reaching a high of $21.20 per share on November 4, 2011.

On March 7, 2013, Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced that on March 1, 2013, the audit committee of its board of directors concluded that the previously issued financial statements contained in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and all unaudited quarterly reports on Form 10-Q in 2011 and 2012, as well its selected financial data for the related periods, should no longer be relied upon because of errors in those financial statements.

MXWL shares closed on March 28, 2013 at $5.39, which is significantly below its 52 week high of $18.82 per share.

The plaintiff seeks to recover damages.
