A Roadrunner Transportation shareholder represented by another law firm has filed a class action complaint against Roadrunner Transportation for federal securities fraud. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, Case No. 2:17-cv-00144-PP.
According to the lawsuit, from May 8, 2014 through January 30, 2017, Roadrunner Transportation and its senior executives made fraudulent and misleading statements violating federal securities laws.
Specifically, the complaint alleges that Roadrunner Transportation and certain of its officers and directors ("Defendants") misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Roadrunner Transportations Morgan Southern, Inc. and Bruenger Trucking subsidiaries had engaged in improper accounting practices; (2) Roadrunner Transportation lacked effective internal controls; (3) as a result, Roadrunner Transportation overstated its earnings throughout the Class Period by tens of millions of dollars; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Roadrunner Transportations financial statements were materially false and misleading.
On November 10, 2016, Roadrunner Transportation revealed that it would be unable to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2016. The Company attributed the delay to a mistake in the calculation of its cash flow leverage ratio for the four quarters ended September 30, 2016. Then, on January 30, 2017, Roadrunner Transportation issued a press release announcing the restatement of prior period financial statements. In addition, the Company stated that, "related press releases, investor presentations, or other communications describing Roadrunners financial statements for these periods should no longer be relied upon." Roadrunner Transportation specified that an investigation uncovered various accounting errors that the company currently estimates will require prior period adjustments to Roadrunners results of operations in the range of $20 to $25 million. The price of Roadrunner Transportation shares fell from $11.54 to $7.92 on January 31 causing investors millions in losses.
