LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Law Offices of Todd M. Garber announces that shareholders of Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (“Chipotle” or the “Company”) (NYSE:CMG) have until October 16, 2012 to move for lead plaintiff status in the shareholder lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a class (the “Class”) comprising all persons or entities who purchased Chipotle common stock between February 1, 2012 and July 19, 2012, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Chipotle develops and operates fast-casual, fresh Mexican food restaurants in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and France. The Complaint alleges that the Company and certain of its executive officers misrepresented and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts concerning Chipotle’s business and financial prospects, including that: (1) Chipotle did not have the pricing power to implement price increases sufficient to offset rising food costs, and as a result the Company’s margins would be under pressure as Chipotle would be unable to pass through these commodity costs to consumers; (2) demand for Chipotle was slowing due to the economy and increased competition, and could not support the Company’s aggressive 2012 earnings forecasts; and (3) Chipotle was experiencing a deceleration of growth as it was becoming a mature company.
As a result of this news, on July 20, 2012 the price of Chipotle stock dropped 22% -- the largest one-day stock decline in the Company’s history.
If you are a member of the above-described Class, you may move the Court no later than October 16, 2012 to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time. You may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent Class member. If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this Notice or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Todd M. Garber, Esquire, of the Law Offices of Todd M. Garber, by telephone at 213-700-7262 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
