New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - November 1, 2023) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential claims against Capstone Green Energy Corporation ("Capstone" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CGRN, OTC: CGRNQ) and reminds investors of the December 12, 2023 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company.
Faruqi & Faruqi is a leading minority and Woman-owned national securities law firm with offices in New York, Pennsylvania, California, and Georgia.
As detailed below, the complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) that the Company had engaged in "bill and hold transactions" with customers; (2) that these transactions were not reported pursuant to generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"); (3) that, "as a result of apparent errors primarily related to revenue recognition associated with bill and hold transactions[,]" the Company lacked a reasonable basis to report certain financial results and was reasonably likely to restate its financial statements; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendant's positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On August 15, 2023, after the closing of trading, the Company announced its inability to timely file a Form 10-Q due to an "ongoing review and investigations by the Audit Committee of financial reporting and other matters."

Then, on August 18, 2023, after trading hours, the Company announced it had entered into a Fifth Amendment to its Amended and Restated Note Purchase Agreement among the Company, Goldman Sachs Specialty Lending Group, L.P. and a purchaser party. Capstone also reported receipt of a notice from the NASDAQ exchange that the Company was not in compliance with listing requirements due to its failure to file periodic financial reports. On this news, the Company's stock price fell $0.26, or 30%, to close at $0.58 per share on August 21, 2023, on unusually high trading volume.
Then, on September 22, 2023, after trading hours, the Company disclosed that certain financial statements could no longer be relied upon "as a result of apparent errors primarily related to revenue recognition associated with bill and hold transactions that were identified in the course a review by the Audit Committee[.]" The Company disclosed there were "numerous instances where bill and hold transactions did not appear to meet the requirements for revenue recognition under GAAP."
Then, on September 28, 2023, the Company announced it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. On this news, the Company's stock price fell $0.10, or 17%, to close at $0.50 per share on September 28, 2023.
Then, on October 4, 2023, after trading hours, it was announced that the company would be delisted, and the ticker symbol changed from CGRN to CGRNQ.
