As detailed below, the lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Schmitt Industries continuously downplayed its serious issues with internal controls; (2) Schmitt Industries' financial statements from August 31, 2021 to the present included "certain errors"; (3) as a result, Schmitt Industries would need to restate its previously filed financial statements for certain periods; and (4) as a result, Defendants' statements about its 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.
On September 20, 2022, after trading hours, Schmitt announced that its previous financial statements as of August 31, 2021 and going forward "should no longer be relied upon" due to "certain errors" made by the Company, that it would "restate its previously filed quarterly financial statements for periods from August 31, 2021 forward," and that "[t]he Company expects to report at least one material weakness following completion of its analysis of the cause of these restatements."
On this news, Schmitt's stock fell 18% to close at $3.12 per share on September 21, 2022, on unusually heavy trading volume.
