The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado on behalf of shareholders of Pilgrim's Pride Corporation who purchased shares between February 9, 2017 and June 3, 2020.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company and its executives had participated in an illegal antitrust conspiracy to fix prices and rig bids from at least as early as 2012 and continuing through at least early 2017; (2) the Company received competitive advantages, which persisted during the Class Period, from its anticompetitive conduct; and (3) as a result, Defendants’ statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects lacked a reasonable basis.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in the respective securities during the class periods. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action. Appointment as Lead Plaintiff is not required to partake in any recovery.
Shareholders have until September 4, 2020 to request that the court appoint them lead plaintiff.
