CASE ALLEGATIONS: Azure Power sells renewable power in India on long-term fixed price contracts.
The Azure Power class action lawsuit alleges that defendants failed to disclose that: (i) there were procedural irregularities, including deviations from safety and quality standards, at one of Azure Power’s plants; (ii) certain project data was manipulated; (iii) as a result, Azure Power’s internal controls and procedures were not effective; and (iv) Azure Power had received a credible whistleblower report alleging such misconduct.
On August 29, 2022, Azure Power announced the resignation of its CEO, less than two months after his appointment. Azure Power also disclosed that it had “received a whistleblower complaint in May 2022 alleging potential procedural irregularities and misconduct by certain employees at a plant belonging to one of its subsidiaries.” During Azure Power’s review of these allegations, Azure Power “discovered deviations from safety and quality norms” and “also identified evidence of manipulation of project data and information by certain employees.” On this news, Azure Power’s stock price fell by approximately 44%, damaging investors.

The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Azure Power class action lawsuit.
