LOS ANGELES--()--Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of a class (the “Class”) comprising all purchasers of the securities of Monster Beverage Corporation (“Monster Beverage” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:MNST) between February 23, 2012 and August 9, 2012 (the “Class Period”).
Monster Beverage, through its subsidiaries, develops, markets, sells and distributes alternative-beverage category beverages in the United States and internationally. The Complaint alleges that the Company and certain of its executive officers issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts concerning the Company’s business and operations. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Company and certain of its executive officers misrepresented or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company was improperly advertising, marketing and promoting its Monster Energy(R) brand drinks; and (2), as a result, the Company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 8, 2012, after the market closed, Monster Beverage announced disappointing financial results, which failed to meet analysts’ expectations. Following this news, the price of Monster Beverage stock declined $6.57, or nearly 10%, to close at $61.20 per share on August 9, 2012.
