Ormat Technologies Had Material Weaknesses in Its Internal Control
Over Financial Reporting
According to the complaint, Ormat first revealed on March 16, 2018, that
its disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December
31, 2017 due to a material weakness in its internal control over
financial reporting. Ormat further reported that it had not performed an
effective risk assessment related to its internal controls over
accounting for income taxes. On May 11, 2018, Ormat disclosed that it
was delaying the filing of its Quarterly Report for the period ended
March 31, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission due to
“error[s] in the Company’s financial statement presentation of deferred
income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities that affects the
Company’s balance sheets in previous reporting periods. Then, on May 16,
2018, Ormat revealed it will restate its second, third, and fourth
quarter 2017 financial statements and its full year 2017 statements and
that its previously issued financial statements for these periods should
not be relied upon. Each of these disclosures resulted in a decrease of
Ormat’s stock price to the detriment of shareholders.
