Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. Investors (ANW)

National securities litigation law firm Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM") announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. ("Aegean" or the "Company") (NYSE: ANW) securities between April 28, 2016 and June 4, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Aegean investors have until August 6, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors that suffered losses on their Aegean investments are encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy of GPM to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 310-201-9150 or by email to shareholders@glancylaw.com.

On June 4, 2018, Aegean announced, following an internal review, that the Company's Audit Committee "believes that approximately $200 million of accounts receivable at December 31, 2017 will need to be written off" because certain transactions "may have been, in full or in part, without economic substance and improperly accounted for in contravention of the Company's normal policies and procedures." On this news, Aegean's share price fell more than 70% on June 5, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Aegean had improperly accounted for an approximate $200 million of accounts receivable as of December 31, 2017; (ii) Aegean failed to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Aegean's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
