The Plaintiff is pursuing claims against the Alpha and Omega Defendants under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. continues its securities investigation of Alpha and Omega.  AOSL investors who purchased, or otherwise acquired, stock shares of Alpha and Omega Semiconductor during the Class Period are encouraged to contact either Michael Yarnoff, Esq., (215) 792-6676, Ext. 804, [email protected][email protected], or John Kehoe, Esq, (215) 792-6676, Ext. 801, [email protected], to discuss the AOSL securities investigation, the class action lawsuit or potential legal claims.

According to the class action complaint, throughout the Class Period, the Alpha and Omega Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company’s export control practices were in violation of applicable laws and regulations; (2) that, as a result, the Company was vulnerable to regulatory scrutiny and liability; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Department of Justice Investigation Regarding AOSL’s Compliance With Export Control Regulations

On February 5, 2020, AOSL issued a press release which, among other things, stated:

The Company notes that Department of Justice recently commenced an investigation into the Company’s compliance with export control regulations relating to certain business transactions with Huawei and its affiliates (“Huawei”), which were added to the “Entity List” by the Department of Commerce (“DOC”). The Company is cooperating fully with federal authorities in the investigation. The Company has maintained an export control compliance program and has been committed to comply fully with all applicable laws and regulations. In connection with this investigation, DOC has requested the Company to suspend shipments of its products to Huawei, and the Company is currently working with DOC to resolve this issue. Accordingly, [AOSL] expect[s] the financial performance in the March quarter will be negatively impacted by the Huawei shipment interruption and by additional professional fees incurred in connection with the investigation. [AOSL] note[s] that the DOC order applies to only [its] shipment to Huawei and sales to other non-Huawei customers are expected to continue, unaffected by the order. Since this is a pending and confidential matter, the Company does not intend to comment further on the status of this investigation except as required by law. [Emphasis added.]

On this news, AOS’s stock price fell $1.48 per share, or 12%, closing at $10.85 per share on February 6, 2020.
