According to the lawsuit, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information about El Pollo Loco’s business and prospects, including that traffic at El Pollo Loco stores had declined substantially due to the removal of value items from the restaurants’ menu boards, and that consequently, comparable store sales were not increasing at 3%, much less the 3% to 5% the defendants had led investors to believe they would grow in the second quarter of 2015.
On August 13, 2015, El Pollo issued a press release revealing its second quarter 2015 results, disclosing that system-wide comparable restaurant sales had grown only 1.3% and reporting sales of just $89.5 million. Shares fell from a close of $18.36 per share on August 13, 2015, to a close of just $14.56 the following day.
