On May 11, 2018, Ormat disclosed that its delaying the filing of its Quarterly Report for the period ended March 31, 2018 with the SEC because “management has identified an error in the Company’s financial statement presentation of deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities that affects the Company’s balance sheets in previous reporting periods.” Ormat further disclosed that “[t]he Company is evaluating the impact of this error on its consolidated financial statements and the extent to which the Company’s annual and quarterly consolidated financial statements filed in previous periods require revision or amendment.”

On this news, Ormat’s stock fell $3.58 per share, or over 6%, over two consecutive trading days to close at $52.77 per share on May 14, 2018, damaging investors.

Then, on May 16, 2018, Ormat revealed that “it will restate its second, third and fourth quarter 2017 financial statements and its full-year 2017 financial statements,” and therefore, “investors should no longer rely upon the Company’s previously issued financial statements for the periods set forth above, earnings releases for these periods, and other communications relating to these financial statements.”

On this news, Ormat’s stock fell $0.67 per share from its previous closing price to close at $52.35 per share on May 16, 2018, damaging investors.
