NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.
According to the lawsuit, the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) it failed to maintain accurately valued contingent consideration in connection with an acquisition; (ii) it overstated its non-cash operating expenses; (iii) it lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (iv) as a result of the above, the Company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On January 15, 2015, the Company announced it will record a non-cash charge which it will now treat as an amortization expense totaling $88.9 million before tax related to the misstatement in its treatment of contingent consideration. On this news, shares of Calavo Growers fell $4.72 per share or over 9% to close at $43.07 per share on January 15, 2015, damaging investors.
