or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing STON@hbsslaw.com.

On September 2, 2016, StoneMor announced that investors should no longer rely on the Company’s public financial statements issued between 2013 and the Company’s second quarter of 2016.  The Company plans to restate financials after improperly allocating net losses to its General Partner.

On October 27, 2016, StoneMor announced it would slash third quarter 2016 distribution to common unit investors by 50% compared to the previous quarter.  This news drove the price of StoneMor units down nearly 45% to close at $13.74 on October 28, 2016.

In addition, SeekingAlpha published a report on October 31, 2016 concluding that StoneMor issued dilutive stock to new investors to pay old investors.

“We’re investigating StoneMor’s improper accounting, its use of non-GAAP financial metrics, and the source of funds distributed to investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
