Infosys panel may summon CEO, CFO & finance team over whistleblower charges

The Schall Law Firm, a shareholder rights litigation firm based in Los Angeles has announced the filing of a class action lawsuit against Limited.

According to the complaint, made false and misleading statements to the market and used improper recognition of revenue to boost short-term profits.

This comes months after a whistleblower complained against and its CEO Salil Parekh on the similar lines. However, the company later after an investigation said it could not find the evidence.

The complaint in the US said CEO Parekh skipped standard reviews of large deals to avoid accounting scrutiny. In fact, the company's finance team was pressured to hide details of these deals and other accounting matters from auditors and the company's Board of Directors.

"Based on these facts, the company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Infosys, investors suffered damages", a statement by the law firm said.

Schall said it encourages investors with losses in excess of $100,000 to contact the firm.

The class action lawsuit against Infosys Limited listed on NYSE for violations of 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Investors who purchased the company's securities between July 7, 2018 and October 20, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"), have been asked to contact the firm before December 23, 2019, it said.

The Schall Law Firm represents investors around the world and specializes in securities class action lawsuits and shareholder rights litigation.
