The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased PPG securities between April 24, 2017 and May 10, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Trevor Mild v. PPG Industries, Inc. et al, No. 18-cv-04231 was filed on May 20, 2018, and has been assigned to Judge Dean D. Pregerson.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to maintain adequate internal accounting controls.

Specifically, on April 19, 2018, PPG disclosed that the Company received a report concerning potential violations of its accounting policies and identifying certain expenses that should have been accrued in the first quarter of 2018.

Then, on May 10, 2018, PPG announced that its Audit Committee found evidence that improper accounting entries were made by certain employees at the direction of PPG’s former Vice President and Controller. Due to this finding, PPG’s Former Vice President was terminated as of May 10, 2018 and the Company announced that it would be unable to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. PPG also declared that its financial statements for the 2017 year should no longer be relied upon.

After the announcement, PPG’s share price fell from $106.11 per share on May 10, 2018 to a closing price of $100.43 on May 11, 2018—a $5.68 or a 5.35% drop.
