SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Reminds Shareholders with Losses on their Investments in AZZ Inc. of Class Action Lawsuit and Upcoming Deadline – AZZ

By Pomerantz LLP

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2018 / Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against AZZ Inc. (“AZZ” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AZZ) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, is on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the securities of AZZ between April 22, 2015 and January 8, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Plaintiff seeks to recover compensable damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

If you are a shareholder who purchased AZZ securities between August 4, 2017, and January 5, 2018, both dates inclusive, you have until March 12, 2018, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 9980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and quantity of shares purchased.

AZZ manufactures specialty electrical equipment and components for the global power generation, power transmission, and distribution markets. The Company also provides hot dip galvanizing services to the steel fabrication industry across the United States.

The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) that the Company misstated revenues for its Energy Segment for the duration of the Class Period; (ii) that it had failed to report revenues in compliance with FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification 605-35-25-92, (iii) that the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; (iv) that its purported efforts, over more than two years, to evaluate revenue recognition standards had been an apparent failure; and that (v) as a result of the foregoing, AZZ’s publicly disseminated financial statements were materially false and misleading.

On January 9, 2018, AZZ announced “that the Company historically should have accounted differently for certain contracts within its Energy Segment.” Specifically, the Company reported that revenue for the contracts at issue “was historically recognized for the Energy Segment upon transfer of title and risk to customers or based upon the percentage of completion method of accounting for electrical products built to customer specifications,” but that “in the case of contracts for which revenue was recorded upon contract completion and transfer of title, the Company instead should have applied the percentage of completion method.” AZZ advised investors that it “is currently reviewing whether…there are any significant impacts to the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2015, and 2017, and the fiscal year ended February 29, 2016, as contained in its 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K and the previously issued unaudited financial statements contained in its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended May 31, 2017, and August 31, 2017.”

On this news, AZZ’s share price fell $3.14, or 6.2%, to close at $47.50 on January 9, 2018.

The Pomerantz Firm, with offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Paris, is acknowledged as one of the premier firms in the areas of corporate, securities, and antitrust class litigation. Founded by the late Abraham L. Pomerantz, known as the dean of the class action bar, the Pomerantz Firm pioneered the field of securities class actions. Today, more than 80 years later, the Pomerantz Firm continues in the tradition he established, fighting for the rights of the victims of securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, and corporate misconduct. The Firm has recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages awards on behalf of class members. See www.pomerantzlaw.com.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT – Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Notifies Investors of Class Action Against Aqua Metals, Inc. (AQMS) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline: February 13, 2018

By Bronstein, Gewirtz and Grossman, LLC

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2018 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Aqua Metals, Inc. (“Aqua Metals” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AQMS) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Aqua Metals securities between February 9, 2017 and November 9, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/aqms.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) Aqua Metals’ lead recycling process using its AquaRefining technology to break and separate batteries was facing substantial obstacles due to AquaRefining’s need for a much higher degree of separation than is normal in the industry; (2) Aqua Metals’ breaking and separating process was not operating reliably or efficiently; (3) the breaking and separating issues were negatively impacting Aqua Metals’ output; (4) Aqua Metals’ four “operating modules” were being used primarily for experimentation rather than production; (5) module operators were assisting with lead removal; (6) consequently, the ramp up of Aqua Metals’ recycling process was being significantly hindered and delayed; and (7) as a result, defendants’ statements about Aqua Metals’ business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, you can visit the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/aqms, or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in Aqua Metals, you have until February 13, 2018 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.

DEADLINE ALERT: Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors With Over $200K in Losses of Class Action Against Triangle Capital Corporation (TCAP) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline – -January 22, 2018

By Bronstein, Gewirtz and Grossman, LLC

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2018 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Triangle Capital Corporation (“Triangle Capital” or the “Company”) (NYSE: TCAP) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Triangle Capital securities between May 7, 2014 through November 1, 2017, both dates inclusive, (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/tcap.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants issued materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) as early as 2013, Triangle Capital’s investment professionals had internally recommended moving away from mezzanine loan deals due to market changes that no longer made these investments attractive risk-reward opportunities; (2) Triangle Capital’s former CEO ignored the advice of the Company’s investment professionals to chase higher short-term yields by causing the Company to invest in mezzanine debt; (3) as a result, Triangle Capital’s entire vintage of 2014 and 2015 investments were at substantial risk of non-accrual due to the poor quality of the investments and deficient underwriting practices in place at the time of the investments; (4) consequently, Triangle Capital’s business, prospects, and ability to maintain its dividend level were materially impaired.

On November 2, 2017, Triangle Capital announced quarterly results that included a lower-than-projected $0.36 per-share net investment income, and “meaningful write-downs of certain debt investments which previously have been carried below cost.” While the Company’s investment in Passport Food Group (“Passport”) was carried at an 8% premium to par in the previous quarter, it was marked at an 8% discount to par for Triangle Capital’s most recent quarter. The Company cited an unexpected loss in Passport’s product line, resulting in lower sales and an overall performance decline. Following this news, Triangle Capital stock dropped $2.57 per share, or 20.98%, to close at $9.68 on November 2, 2017.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, you can visit the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/tcap, or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in Triangle Capital, you have until January 22, 2018 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff.
