STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas on behalf of purchasers of Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) (“Fluor” or the “Company”) securities during the period between August 14, 2013 and May 3, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until July 24, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Fluor securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that Fluor’s bidding process for projects related to the construction of gas-fired power generation facilities was flawed, it had improperly estimated the gas-fire projects, it would face craft productivity issues, equipment issues and other execution issues, it would incur multiple charges impacting quarterly results, and it would ultimately decide to discontinue the pursuit of the gas-fired power market.
According to the complaint, following an August 3, 2017 press release announcing a net loss of $24 million, and a May 3, 2018 press release announcing a net loss and a pre-tax charge for revisions on a gas-fired power project, the value of Fluor shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Fluor securities purchased on or after August 14, 2013 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.
Attorneys at Brower Piven have extensive experience in litigating securities and other class action cases and have been advocating for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s. If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
