CIE INVESTOR ALERT - Andrews & Springer LLC Is Investigating Cobalt International Energy Inc. For Possible Securities Fraud Violations

August 5, 2014



WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating Cobalt International Energy Inc. (“Cobalt” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CIE) for possible violations of securities laws relating to the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) announcement today that it plans on charging the Company with violations of securities laws.

Today, on August 5, 2014, Cobalt announced that it received a “Wells Notice” from the SEC that alleges that the Company violated securities laws. The SEC’s investigation, dating back to 2011, concerns whether the Company violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in Angola, one of Cobalt’s biggest regions for investment and exploration. Cobalt has several offshore blocks in Angola, where the Company is finishing an appraisal well. Two of these blocks, the Company was assigned to partner with Angolan contractor Nazaki Oil and Gaz SA. In 2010, Cobalt became aware of allegations concerning certain senior Angolan government officials that were connected with Nazaki. In 2011, the SEC opened an investigation into these allegations. As a result of this news, Cobalt’s share price fell 10.96% today.

Given this information, Andrews & Springer LLC is preparing a class action lawsuit as a result.
