PPC Class Action & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 4, 2020
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation ("Pilgrim’s Pride" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: PPC) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Pilgrim’s Pride securities between February 9, 2017, and June 3, 2020, inclusive (the ''Class Period'').
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Pilgrim’s Pride 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) Pilgrim’s Pride received competitive advantages, which persisted during the Class Period, from its anticompetitive conduct; and (3) as a result, the defendants’ statements about the Pilgrim’s Pride’s business, operations, and prospects lacked a reasonable basis.
