Rio Tinto PLC. The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who purchased Rio Tinto PLC (“Rio Tinto”) (NYSE: RIO) securities between October 23, 2012 and February 15, 2013.
In 2011, Rio Tinto acquired certain Riversdale Mining Limited coal assets in Mozambique that became known as Rio Tinto Coal Mozambique (“RTCM”). The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding RTCM’s true value, including that: (1) within months of the purchase, now-former senior executives knew of material problems adversely affecting RTCM’s multi-billion dollar publicly reported valuation; (2) as time passed, the same senior executives knew of additional problems and events that, under applicable accounting rules, required an impairment analysis of RTCM and reductions in its reported valuation; and (3) these executives thwarted the required impairment analysis and continued to tout RTCM’s value to investors.
