Azure sells renewable power in India on long-term fixed price contracts. The Company operates approximately 45 utility scale projects.

Plaintiff alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operations, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants allegedly made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) there were procedural irregularities, including deviations from safety and quality standards, at one of Azure's plants; (2) certain project data was manipulated; (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's internal controls and procedures were not effective; and (4) Azure had received a credible whistleblower report alleging such misconduct.

On August 29, 2022, Azure announced the resignation of its CEO, less than two months after his appointment. The Company 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 the Company's review of these allegations, Azure 'discovered deviations from safety and quality norms' and 'also identified evidence of manipulation of project data and information by certain employees.'

On this news, the Company's stock fell $4.61, or 44%, to close at $5.85 per share on August 29, 2022.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than October 31, 2022. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
