There is no cost or fee to you.According to former SEC attorney and shareholder advocate Willie Briscoe, "based on recent revelations about the conduct of Primo Water's Board of Directors and certain officers, the firms have commenced an investigation to uncover possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of state law by the officers and directors." On December 2, 2011, Primo Water and certain of its officers and directors were charged with violating the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants issued materially false and misleading statements misrepresenting and/or failing to disclose the following adverse facts: (a) neither demand nor sales of Primo Water's products were as robust as represented; (b) stores owned by Primo Water's largest retail customers did not carry Primo Water's products so the company was not generating any revenue from those locations; (c) Primo Water's growth and business prospects were heavily dependent upon the ability of the company's two largest customers to sell products from other, unrelated companies before those customers would order products from Primo Water; (d) Primo Water's primary retail customers would not be in a position to order any of the company's products until after those retail customers cleared out other inventory sitting on their shelves, including inventory related to products sold by competitors to Primo Water; (e) Primo Water's largest retail customers had delayed promotions of the company's products, which negatively impacted sales; (f) Primo Water's growth rate had slowed and would be slower for the rest of 2011, if not beyond; (g) Primo Water would not meet the financial guidance it provided to investors; and (h) as a result of the foregoing, defendants' positive statements about the company were lacking in a reasonable basis of fact and were materially false and misleading when made.
