NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2015) - The following statement is being issued by Levi & Korsinsky, LLP:

To: All persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired American Depositary Shares of Abengoa, S.A. ("Abengoa") (NASDAQ: ABGB) between November 12, 2014 and August 2, 2015.

The Complaint alleges that Abengoa and certain of its former and current executive officers and directors have misrepresented the liquidity of the Company's balance sheet.

On July 31, 2015, the Company announced it would lower its free cash flow guidance and a plan to divest itself of 400 million euros in assets. Despite this statement, Defendant Santiago Seage maintained that "the company has no plan to... tap the capital markets in any manner." Then on August 3, 2015, contrary to this statement, Abengoa announced a share issuance plan to raise 650 million euros, along with an asset divestiture totaling 500 million euros. Upon this news, Abengoa ADSs plunged over $5 per share, or 46% to a close of just $6.00 on August 4, 2015.

If you suffered a loss in Abengoa you have until October 9, 2015 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
