National securities litigation law firm Glancy
Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces that a class action
lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Aegean
Marine Petroleum Network Inc. (“Aegean” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ANW)
securities between April 28, 2016 and June 4, 2018, inclusive
(the “Class Period”). Aegean investors have until August 6, 2018 to

Investors that suffered losses on their Aegean investments are
encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy of GPM to discuss their legal
rights in this class action at 310-201-9150 or by email to shareholders@glancylaw.com.

On June 4, 2018, Aegean announced, following an internal review, that
the Company’s Audit Committee “believes that approximately $200 million
of accounts receivable at December 31, 2017 will need to be written off”
because certain transactions “may have been, in full or in part, without
economic substance and improperly accounted for in contravention of the
Company’s normal policies and procedures.” On this news, Aegean’s share
price fell more than 70% on June 5, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that defendants made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i)
Aegean had improperly accounted for an approximate $200 million of
accounts receivable as of December 31, 2017; (ii) Aegean failed to
maintain effective internal control over financial reporting; and (iii)
as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Aegean’s
business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or
lacked a reasonable basis.
