IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Khang & Khang LLP (the “Firm”) announces a class action lawsuit against Caterpillar Inc. (“Caterpillar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CAT). Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares between February 19, 2013 and March 1, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”), are encouraged to contact the Firm in advance of the May 2, 2017 lead plaintiff motion deadline.

There has been no class certification in this case. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.
The Complaint states during the Class Period, Caterpillar issued materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company unlawfully used foreign subsidiaries to avoid paying billions of dollars in U.S. taxes; that discovery of such conduct would subject Caterpillar to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential criminal sanctions; and that Caterpillar’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On March 2, 2017, law enforcement officials raided Caterpillar’s facilities in Peoria, Illinois. The Company indicated that it believed the raid is related to export filings of its Swiss subsidiary Caterpillar SARL.
