SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors of Class Action Against Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK; CHKDG) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline: December 5, 2016


NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Chesapeake Energy Corporation ("Chesapeake" or the "Company") (NYSE: CHK) (OTC: CHKDG) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Chesapeake securities between February 27, 2015 and September 28, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants issued false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Chesapeake had improperly accounted for the acquisition and classification of oil and gas properties and that it lacked effective internal financial controls. In its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Chesapeake noted that it "follows the full cost method of accounting under which all costs associated with oil and natural gas property acquisition, drilling and completion activities are capitalized." On September 29, 2016, Chesapeake revealed that they received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice, specifically asking for the Company's accounting methodology for the acquisition and classification of oil and gas properties.  Following this news, Chesapeake stock dropped as much as $0.69 per share, or 10.22%, to $6.06 during intraday trading on September 29, 2016.
