Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP (“AF&T”) announces that it is representing a shareholder who filed a class action lawsuit against Lone Pine Resources, Inc. (“Lone Pine” or the “Company”) alleging claims arising under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) that the Company, its directors and underwriters issued false and misleading offering materials in connection with Lone Pine’s May 26, 2011 initial public offering (“IPO”). Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants failed to inform investors that prior to the IPO the Company was experiencing significantly increased costs and disruption in oil production volumes as a result of a pipe line rupture and a large forest fire.
The lawsuit was originally filed in New York State court but was subsequently removed to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Court”), where the case is currently captioned
Augenbaum v. Lone Pine Resources, Inc., et al.
, No. 12 Civ. 4839 (GBD). The plaintiff intends to move the Court to remand (
