Independent Investigation by the Law Firm Unveils New Claims for CSIQ Investors Who Were Allegedly Deceived by Company's Financial Statements

Jul. 26, 2010 (GlobeNewswire) --

SAN FRANCISCO, July 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman announced today that CSIQ investors have about one week left to move for lead plaintiff in the class-action lawsuit against Canadian Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSIQ) in California, where the company's sole U.S. operations exist. The lawsuit identified new claims and new classes based on an independent investigation undertaken by the law firm.

The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, alleged Canadian Solar overstated its revenues and concealed necessary information about the company's business operations ahead of the $100 million plus October 2009 offering of common stock. Defendants include Canadian Solar senior officers, Arthur Chien and Shawn Qu, who allegedly authorized recorded revenues from fictitious sales transactions and failed to properly account for product returns in 2009, in the registration statements, prospectus and other documents. As a result, the company sold CSIQ shares to investors at inflated prices.

The new complaint, which can be found at, seeks to represent three classes of investors who purchased CSIQ shares during the revised Class Period from October 13, 2021 to June 1, 2010. The three classes of investors include:

  • A class for all investors who acquired CSIQ shares traceable to the company's false and misleading October 2009 registration statement form (strict liability);
  • A class for all investors who acquired CSIQ shares traceable to the company's false and misleading October 2009 prospectus (negligence); and
  • A class of all investors who purchased CSIQ shares on or after October 13, 2021 (fraud).

Other complaints have identified the class period of May 26, 2022 and June 1, 2022 for fraud claims. Investors who fall within one of these classes may be eligible to participate in the class-action lawsuit as a lead plaintiff. To serve as a lead plaintiff in this class-action lawsuit, you must move the Court no later than August 2, 2010. Any investor who purchased CSIQ shares during the Class Period may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through the counsel of their choice. Investors also may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.

If you have losses greater than $100,000 from purchases in these periods or would like to discuss your legal rights and move to be a lead plaintiff, you may contact Reed Kathrein, Managing Partner of the Hagens Berman San Francisco office, without obligation or cost to you, at 510-725-3000, or by e-mail at Hagens Berman also welcomes any information you may have that would advance the investigation.

            • Dan Johnson hit his third homer against New York in a week, and the Rays' bullpen outpitched the pinstriped relievers to help Tampa Bay pull within 1 1/2 games of New York in the AL East in a game that ended at 12:34 a.m. Tampa Bay improved to 9-8 in the season series - the first tiebreaker should the teams be equal after 162 games - with one game to go.
