On the Schall Law Firm asking investors with losses in excess of $100,000 to contact the firm, Infosys said that it is "not uncommon" for plaintiff`s lawyers asking potential plaintiffs to contact them, for applying lead plaintiff status citing, "It appears that the press communications by the Schall Law Firm is soliciting potential lead plaintiff applicants."
According to the Schall Law Firm, Infosys made false and misleading statements to the market and used improper recognition of revenue to boost short-term profits. This came months after a whistleblower complained against Infosys and its CEO Salil Parekh on similar lines. The company, however, after an investigation, said it could not find the evidence.
The Schall Law Firm statement says, "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." (With inputs from IANS)
