Lieff Cabraser Announces Securities Class Litigation Against Duke Energy Corporation

The law firm of Lieff, Cabraser, Heimann & Bernstein, LLP announces that class action litigation has been brought on behalf of all persons who (i) purchased the common stock of Duke Energy Corporation (“Duke Energy” or the “Company”) (NYSE: DUK) between June 11, 2012 and July 9, 2012, inclusive (“Class Period”), (ii) purchased or otherwise acquired Duke Energy common stock pursuant to the Company’s July 7, 2011 Prospectus and Registration Statement (“Prospectus”), and (iii) exchanged shares of Progress Energy, Inc. (“Progress”) common stock for shares of Duke Energy stock in connection with the merger with Progress (“Merger”).

If you purchased Duke Energy common stock during the Class Period or pursuant to Duke Energy’s July 7, 2011 Prospectus, or exchanged shares of Progress common stock for shares of Duke Energy stock in connection with the Merger, you may move the Court for appointment as lead plaintiff by no later than September 24, 2012. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
