According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of PTC Inc (NASDAQ: PTC) common shares between November 24, 2011 and July 29, 2015, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between November 24, 2011 and July 29, 2015 the defendants issued false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that PTC Inc did not disclose to the SEC and the DOJ the full results of its investigation into whether PTC China improperly provided recreational travel to Chinese government officials in violation of the FCPA, that PTC Inc was not cooperating with the SEC and the DOJ in connection with their investigations into whether PTC China improperly provided recreational travel to Chinese government officials in violation of the FCPA, that PTC Inc’s books and records were inaccurate and PTC Inc failed to maintain adequate internal accounting controls, and that as a result, PTC Inc’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

PTC Inc said that in connection with the agreements, PTC Inc and its China subsidiaries will pay $28.2 million in penalties and interest to these agencies.
