NEW YORK, Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Kobe Steel, Ltd. (“Kobe” or the “Company”) (OTC MKTS:KBSTY) (OTC MKTS:KBSTF) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Kobe American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) of Kobe Steel on the open market in the U.S., during the period May 29, 2013 through October 12, 2017, and were damaged thereby. Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/kbsty. 

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. 

The complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose the quality of its products and integrity of its operations by emphasizing that it offers “excellent products and services” with “special attention to product safety” as it has “an organizational culture that is highly sensitive to compliance issues.” The lawsuit claims that the Company withheld data on many of its aluminum, copper, iron and steel products, and knowingly sold products that failed quality control tests.

On October 8, 2017, Kobe Steel stated that it “has discovered that in its Aluminum & Copper Business, including group companies, a portion of the products traded with customers did not comply with the product specifications which were agreed between the Company and its customers. Data in inspection certificates had been improperly rewritten etc., and the products were shipped as having met the specifications concerned.” Following this news, shares of Kobe
ADRs dropped $2.37 per share or roughly 40% during that week.
