A number of law firms have filed legal suits, or commenced investigations, against New York-listed Aegean Marine Petroleum Network (Aegean) on behalf of investors after the firm announced a $200 million account discrepancy on Monday.

Share prices of Aegean fell $2.03 from $2.85 per share on June 4, 2018 to $0.82 per share on June 5, 2018 representing a decline of about 71% on Tuesday, after the announcement.
