Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP Announces Investigation of YPF Sociedad Anonima

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP Announces Investigation of YPF Sociedad Anonima18:49 EST Wednesday, February 06, 2013 LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential claims on behalf of all purchasers of the American Depositary Shares of YPF Sociedad Anonima (“YPF” or the “Company”) (NYSE:YPF) pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's March 23, 2011 offering. The investigation concerns possible violations of federal securities laws and focuses on allegations that the Registration Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the March 23, 2011 offering was materially false and misleading. YPF engages in the exploration, development and production of crude oil, natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in Argentina. The Company is involved also in refining, marketing, transporting and distributing oil and petroleum products, petroleum derivatives, petrochemicals, LPG and bio-fuels. The investigation is related to allegations that the Registration Statement misrepresented or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company faced a risk of nationalization by the Argentinean government; (2) as a result of the Company's failure to adequately produce oil and gas within Argentina and reinvest a substantial portion of its profits back into the Company and its operations, the risk of nationalization had increased; (3) the Company was in breach of its concession contracts with various Argentinean provinces; and (4) nationalization by the Argentinean government would likely have a severe adverse effect on shareholders and on the Company's market value. If you purchased YPF American Depositary Shares pursuant or traceable to the March 23, 2011 offering, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Michael Goldberg, Esquire, of Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles, California 90067, by telephone at (310) 201-9150, Toll Free at (888) 773-9224, by e-mail to shareholders@glancylaw.com, or visit our website at http://www.glancylaw.com.
