NEW YORK, — Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against USA Technologies, Inc. (“USA Technologies” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: USAT) in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired USA Technologies securities between November 9, 2017 through September 11, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover 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.
The Complaint alleges Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) USA Technologies’ treatment of contractual arrangements in its financial statements would result in an internal investigation and delay the filing of its annual report for fiscal year 2018; (2) consequently, USA Technologies’ internal controls over financial reporting were weak and deficient; (3) as a result, Defendants’ statements about USA Technologies’ business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares during the Class Period should contact the Firm prior to the November 13, 2018 lead plaintiff motion deadline.
