Glancy Prongay & Murray Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Pilgrim's Pride Corporation (PPC)

Share:

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM") reminds investors of the upcoming September 4, 2020 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of Pilgrim's Pride Corporation ("Pilgrim's Pride" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:PPC) investors who purchased securities between February 9, 2017, and June 3, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period").

If you suffered a loss on your Pilgrim's Pride investments or would like to inquire about potentially pursuing claims to recover your loss under the federal securities laws, you can submit your contact information at https://www.glancylaw.com/cases/pilgrims-pride-corporation/. You can also contact Charles H. Linehan, of GPM at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, or via email at shareholders@glancylaw.com to learn more about your rights.

On June 3, 2020, The Wall Street Journal reported that Pilgrim's Pride's Chief Executive Officer and others had been indicted "for allegedly conspiring to fix prices on chickens sold to restaurants and grocery stores."

On this news, the Company's share price fell $2.58, or more than 12%, to close at $18.29 per share on June 3, 2020, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that 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) that 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.
