Bernstein Liebhard LLP Announces That A Class Action Has Been Filed Against Global Power Equipment Group Inc. And Advises Investors With Losses In Excess Of $100,000 To Contact Bernstein Liebhard LLP Prior To The Lead Plaintiff Deadline



NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP today alerts investors that a class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas on behalf of purchasers (the "Class") of securities of Global Power Equipment Group, Inc. ("Global Power" or the "Company") (NYSE: GLPW) during the period of March 17, 2014 and May 6, 2015 (the "Class Period") alleging violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the "Complaint").

Bernstein Liebhard LLP

The Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public that: (1) the Company's cost of sales in its financial statements for the annual period ended December 31, 2014 were understated; (2) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over its financial reporting; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Specifically, on May 6, 2015, the Company announced in a Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filing that "[i]t will delay the filing of its Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2015 and restate its financial results for the annual period ended December 31, 2014. As a result, the Company is also withdrawing its previously issued earnings guidance for 2015 at this time. On May 5, 2015, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Global Power, in consultation with its outside advisors and management, concluded that the financial statements for the annual period ended December 31, 2014 should not be relied upon because of accounting errors affecting the fourth quarter of 2014 that were discovered during the first quarter 2015 financial review process. Those errors resulted in an understatement of the Company's cost of sales in the quarterly and annual periods ended December 31, 2014."

Following this news, Global Power's stock price fell $4.05 per share, over 33%, on May 7, 2015.

Plaintiffs seek to recover damages on behalf of all Class members who purchased shares of Global Power during the Class Period.  If you purchased Global Power securities as described above, and either lost money on the transaction or still hold the security, you may wish to join in this action to serve as lead plaintiff.  In order to do so, you must meet certain requirements set forth in the applicable law and file appropriate papers no later than July 13, 2015.

A "lead plaintiff" is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class.  Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as lead plaintiff.  Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.  You may retain Bernstein Liebhard LLP, or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.

If you are interested in discussing your rights as a Global Power shareholder and/or have information relating to the matter, please contact Joseph R. Seidman, Jr. at (877) 779-1414 or seidman@bernlieb.com.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP has pursued hundreds of securities, consumer and shareholder rights cases and recovered over $3 billion for its clients.  The National Law Journal has recognized Bernstein Liebhard for twelve consecutive years as one of the top plaintiffs' firms in the country.

You can obtain a copy of the complaint from the clerk of the court for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
