SandRidge Is Accused of Weak Financial Controls and Misrepresenting Its Operations and Financial Performance

According to the complaint, shares of SandRidge declined $0.25, or over 6%, to close at $3.56 per share on November 4, 2014, after the company announced that not only would its third quarter 2014 financial results be delayed, but that investors could no longer rely on financial statements for the years ending 2012 and 2013 and the first two quarters of 2014. This announcement was made as the result of a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation that revealed the company had been improperly accounting for under-delivery penalties in its treating agreement with Occidental Petroleum Corporation. Specifically, rather than accounting for the penalties quarterly, the proper method according to the SEC, SandRidge had been accounting for the penalties on an annual basis.
