NEW YORK, May 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Houston American Energy Corp. ("Houston American" or the "Company") (NYSE Amex: HUSA).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the continued investment in testing and completing the C7 and C9 formations in Tamandua #1 well was unproductive and not commercially viable; (2) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On March 1, 2012, Houston American announced delays in drilling the Company's Tamandua #1 well and claimed further analysis of the well's C7 and C9 formations would be announced as soon as they were available. The Company's share price collapsed by roughly 36.2% as a result of the announced delay, opening on March 1 at $10.97 and closing at $7.00. On April 19, 2012, Houston American finally announced the termination of its efforts to test and complete the C7 and C9 formations in the Tamandua #1 well. On this disappointing news, Houston American's share price again plummeted, falling roughly 35.2% from a close of $3.49 on April 18, 2012 to a close of $2.26 on April 19, 2012.
