On May 21, 2018, Akers disclosed it was unable to file its Form 10-Q
with the SEC for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and that its
continuing review of the "characterization of certain revenue
recognition items ... now includes certain transactions in previous
quarters." On this news, shares of Akers fell $0.058 or over 8% to close
at $0.599 on May 22, 2018.

Then on May 29, 2018, Akers issued a press release stating that "Raymond
F. Akers Jr., Ph.D has resigned as a director of the Company with
immediate effect." On this news, shares of Akers fell $0.198 or over 33%
to close at $0.391 on May 29, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that, defendants made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
Akers was improperly recognizing revenue for the fiscal year ended
December 31, 2017; (2) Akers had downplayed weaknesses in its internal
controls over financial reporting and failed to disclose the true extent
of those weaknesses; and (3) as a result, defendants' statements about
Akers' business, operations and prospects were materially false and
misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of Akers during the Class Period you may move
the Court no later than August 13, 2018 to ask the Court to
appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not
take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or
take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish
