The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California Dismisses Securities Fraud Class Action Against Maxwell Technologies Inc

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California dismissed a securities fraud class action against Maxwell Technologies Inc. arising from alleged misstatements concerning its financial results. Shareholders in Maxwell Technologies Inc. sued the company and certain of its officers for securities fraud alleging violations of 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleged the defendants made misstatements intended to conceal a secret arrangement with certain distributors for special payment terms, allowing the distributors to delay payment until their customers paid them. The plaintiffs alleged that even though Maxwell's revenue recognition policy called for revenue to be recognized only where collectability was "reasonably assured," Maxwell recognized revenues due under those secret arrangements, in violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). When, on April 26, 2012, the firm announced disappointing financial results, the company's stock price dropped from $15.80 to $9.60 per share, to the plaintiffs' material detriment. The defendants moved to dismiss. The district court found the complaint failed to adequately allege scienter as against any individual defendant. After reviewing the statements of five confidential witnesses, the district court was unable to determine whether any of the witnesses had any reason to believe the individual defendant knew there were improprieties, and while the company's auditor resigned during the class period, the resignation alone was not sufficient to raise a strong inference of scienter, as required under the heightened pleading standards of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. Announces Latest Addition to its K2 Series of Ultracapacitor Cells

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced the latest addition to its K2 series of ultracapacitor cells. The new 2.85-volt, 3400-farad ultracapacitor cell increases the range of available specific power and stored energy in the industry-standard 60 mm cylindrical "K2" form factor, and introduced DuraBlue Shock and Vibration Technology, the newest innovation in ultracapacitor reliability and performance. DuraBlue Technology is tested to some of the most demanding environmental requirements for transportation, increasing vibration resistance by approximately 300% and shock immunity by 400% when compared with ultracapacitor-based competitive offerings. Unlike batteries, Maxwell ultracapacitor products store energy in an electrical field that is larger than that of a capacitor -- meaning ultracapacitors have greater energy storage capacity than capacitors. This electrostatic energy storage mechanism enables ultracapacitors to charge and discharge in as little as fractions of a second, perform normally over a broad temperature range (-40 degrees to +65 degrees C), operate reliably in hundreds of thousands or more duty cycles and resist shock and vibration. Maxwell offers ultracapacitor cells ranging in capacitance from one to 3400 farads and multi-cell modules ranging from 16 to 160 volts, which have proven to deliver high power, whether used alone or paired with batteries, in a variety of applications from automotive or industrial to consumer electronics, transportation and beyond.

Maxwell Mulls Acquisitions

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (NasdaqGS:MXWL) is looking for acquisitions. Maxwell Technologies, Inc. will use the net proceeds of a proposed offering in the amount of $125 million for acquisitions of businesses, products and technologies that complement or expand its business, among others.
