LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the October 11, 2016 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Flowers Foods, Inc. (“Flowers Foods” or the “Company”) (NYSE: FLO) securities between February 7, 2013, and August 10, 2016 (the “Class Period”).
The complaint charges Flowers Foods and certain of its officers with violations of the federal securities laws. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that the Company was improperly classifying employees as independent contractors; (2) that the misclassification exposed the Company to legal liability and/or negative regulatory action; (3) that proper classification would have a negative impact on the Company’s operations; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Flowers Foods’ business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired Flowers Foods shares during the Class Period, you may move the Court no later than October 11, 2016 to request appointment as lead plaintiff. 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 member of the Class.
