SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Warren Resources, Inc. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Warren Resources, Inc. (“Warren Resources” or the “Company”) (OTC:WRESQ) of the October 11, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado on behalf of all those who purchased Warren Resources common stock between November 4, 2014 and June 2, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Speiser v. Epstein et al., No. 1:16-cv-02037 was filed on August 11, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Craig B. Shaffer.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to hide the fact that lower energy prices were having a negative effect on Warren Resources. The Company represented that Warren Resources was “well positioned” to “ride out” and “successfully navigate” the “market fluctuations,” when, in fact, Warren was becoming increasingly insolvent. The Company eventually filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on June 2, 2016.
