Attorneys at Law LLP
("Scott+Scott"), a national securities and
consumer rights litigation firm, is reminding investors that a class
action lawsuit has been filed against Aegean Marine Petroleum Network
Inc. (NYSE:ANW) ("Aegean" or the "Company") and other defendants,
related to alleged violations of federal securities laws. If you
purchased Aegean stock or securities between April 28, 2016 and June 4,
2018, you are encouraged to contact a Scott+Scott attorney at (844)

Investors have until August
6, 2018, to move for lead plaintiff.

Aegean supplies and markets refined marine fuel and lubricants to ships
in port and at sea. The Company also owns and operates a fleet of
bunkering tankers.

The lawsuit alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading
statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Aegean had improperly
accounted for an approximate $200 million of accounts receivable as of
December 31, 2017; (ii) Aegean failed to maintain effective internal
control over financial reporting; and (iii) as a result of the
foregoing, Defendants' statements about Aegean's business, operations,
and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On June 4, 2018, Aegean filed a Form 6-K announcing that "approximately
$200 million of accounts receivable owed to the Company at December 31,
2017 will need to be written off." Per the 6-K, certain "transactions
that gave rise to the accounts receivable… may have been, in full or in
part, without economic substance and improperly accounted for[.]"

On this news, the price of Aegean shares fell $2.15, over 75%, to close
at $0.70 per share on June 5, 2018.
