Share:

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the upcoming April
23, 2019
 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class
action filed on behalf of Conagra Brands, Inc. ("Conagra" or the
"Company") (NYSE: CAG)
investors who: a) purchased or otherwise acquired Conagra common stock
between June 27, 2018 and December 19, 2018,
inclusive (the "Class Period"); and/or b) purchased Conagra common stock
pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's secondary public offering
commenced on or about October 9, 2018 ("SPO"). Conagra investors have
until April 23, 2019 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Conagra investments are encouraged
to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal
rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On December 20, 2018, the Company disclosed disappointing financial
results for 2Q 2019, including net sales for its recently-acquired
Pinnacle Foods, Inc. ("Pinnacle") that were "below expectations due to
weak performance across a range of significant brands," which resulted
in negative scrutiny by analysts, questioning whether Conagra had
performed proper due diligence in the transaction.

On this news, shares of Conagra fell $2.13 or nearly 9%, to close at
$22.15 on December 21, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the
Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements
regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies.
Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or
failed to disclose that: (1) Conagra inadequately performed proper due
diligence in connection with the acquisition of Pinnacle; (2) the
performance of Pinnacle's three leading brands was not deteriorating due
to intensified competition, but to self-inflicted subpar innovation and
executional missteps; (3) Pinnacle's business was performing so poorly
that it had resorted to pushing promotional deals to retailers in an
effort to boost sales; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Defendant's
public statements were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked
a reasonable basis when made.

If you purchased shares of Conagra during the Class Period you may move
the Court no later than April 23, 2019 to ask the Court
to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements.
To be a member of the class action you need not take any action at this
time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain
an absent member of the class action. If you wish to learn more about
this class action, or if you have any questions concerning this
