Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities law firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Willbros Group, Inc. (NYSE: WG) (“Willbros” or the “Company”). On October 22, 2014, Willbros announced that it intends to restate its second quarter 2014 financial results, and that such results should no longer be relied upon.

Willbros stated that it had identified approximately $22.0 to $24.0 million in deterioration of a significant pipeline construction project in the Company’s Northeast regional business within the Oil & Gas segment. This deterioration consists of the reversal of approximately $8.0 million in pre-tax income previously recognized and the recognition of approximately $14.0 to $16.0 million in estimated pre-tax losses at project completion. In addition, Willbros is evaluating any impact on its prior conclusions of the adequacy of internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures.

This restatement follows the announcement that the Company’s CEO, Robert R. Harl, and President, Earl Collins, had resigned. As a result of the announcement of the restatement, the Company’s stock has fallen over 32 percent in intraday trading or $2.46 per share to $5.19 per share.
