MONDAY DEADLINE ALERT: The Schall Law Firm Announces it is Investigating Claims Against Whitestone REIT and Encourages Investors with Losses in Excess of $100,000 to Contact the Firm

June 14, 2019

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 14, 2019--

The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Whitestone REIT (“Whitestone” or “the Company”) (NYSE: WSR ) for violations of §§10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The investigation focuses on whether the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose information pertinent to investors. Whitestone failed to maintain sufficient internal controls on financial reporting. The Company incorrectly recognized assets and liabilities aligned with its contributions to Pillarstone Capital REIT Operating Partnership LP. The Company’s fiscal statements for fiscal year 2018 overstated revenues and could not be relied upon by investors. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Whitestone, investors suffered damages.
