Summary: 

An investor in shares of USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT) filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey over alleged violations of Federal Securities Laws by USA Technologies, Inc. in connection with certain allegedly false and misleading statements made between November 9, 2017 and September 11, 2018.

According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT) common shares between November 9, 2017 and September 11, 2018, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between November 9, 2017 and September 11, 2018, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that 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, that consequently, USA Technologies’ internal controls over financial reporting were weak and deficient, and that 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.
