A shareholders class action lawsuit was commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Diamond Foods issued the following materially false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s business and financial results: (1) Diamond allegedly failed to disclose that the Company had underestimated the ultimate price to be paid to walnut growers; (2) Diamond Foods improperly accounted for its cost of sales and as result, overstated their financial results; (3) The Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (4) as a result of the false and misleading statements, the Company lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about their business, operations, and prospects. dockets.justia.com/docket/california/candce/3:2011cv05386/247344/ Case No.: 2011-cv-05386
According to the Complaint, on April 5, 2011, Diamond Foods announced that it was going to acquire the Pringles snack business from The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) and finish the acquisition by December 2011. However, shareholders allege that Diamond Foods lacked any reasonable basis for this timeframe. It was not until November 1, 2011 that Diamond Foods finally disclosed that their acquisition of Pringles would be delayed until the first half of 2012 due to internal investigations of the above allegations. In reaction to this news, Diamond Foods shares declines $11,33 per share, or 17.67%, to close on November 2, 2011 at $52.79 per share, on unusually heavy trading volume.
