CannaVEST Is Accused of Misrepresenting Its Sales and Goodwill

According to the complaint, shares of CannaVest fell $7.30 per share, or more than 20%, to close at $25.30 on April 3, 2014, following the company's announcement that its financials reported on the Form 10-Qs for the quarters ended March 31, 2013, June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2013 were misreported and could no longer be relied upon. Specifically, the company revealed that the allocation methodology used by management were not in accordance with GAAP.  Shares of CannaVest declined an additional 19.5%, or $4.49 per share, to close at $18.51 on April 14, 2014, following the company's release of an Amended Form 8-K which disclosed that it was restating its goodwill for the periods ending March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, and restating its sales figures for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The complaint further alleges that, during the class period, CannaVest failed to disclose to these facts to investors causing the company's stock to trade at artificially inflated prices during the class period.
