NORTHERN OIL AND GAS INVESTOR REMINDER: Hagens Berman Reminds Investors in Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. of the October 17, 2016 Lead Plaintiff Deadline in Securities Class Action

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in Northern Oil and Gas, Inc.

Northern Oil and Gas allegedly failed to disclose that its internal compliance program inadequately detected violations of regulatory rules and the Company’s Code of Business Conduct.  As a consequence, the Company’s CEO (Michael Reger) illegally manipulated NOG stock.

On August 11, 2016, Reger notified the Company that the S.E.C. would institute an enforcement action against him for violations of federal securities laws.  The S.E.C.’s decision concerns an ongoing investigation into certain financial transactions between Reger, two former Northern Oil executives, and another publicly traded company that the three executives helped form, Dakota Plains Holdings Inc.

On August 16, 2016, Northern Oil and Gas announced its termination of Reger and explained it “does not believe that Mr. Reger will be entitled to any severance payment in connection with his separation from the Company.”  The Company also disclosed that it will continue to cooperate with the S.E.C. in its Dakota Plains Holdings investigation.  Reger responded by suing Northern Oil for wrongful termination.

News of the scandal drove the price of Northern Oil and Gas shares down 6% to close at $3.73 per share on August 16, 2016.

“This type of loose compliance usually means management cannot be trusted,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein. “Certainly investors would want to know this sort of information before deciding to invest their money in a company.”
