on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Hi-Crush Partners LP. ("Hi-Crush" or the "Company") (NYSE:HCLP), who purchased shares securities pursuant to the Company's

Initial Public Offering, concerning whether the company and certain of its officers and directors have violated federal securities laws.
The complaint charges Hi-Crush, certain of its officers and directors and the underwriters of its IPO with violations of the Securities Act of 1933. The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement issued in connection with the Company's

IPO was negligently prepared and, as a result, contained untrue statements of material facts, omitted to state other facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading and was not prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations governing its preparation.
Specifically, the complaint alleges that the Registration Statement highlighted Baker Hughes Incorporated ("Baker Hughes") as one of Hi-Crush's two largest customers and emphasized that it was obligated to purchase sand from Hi-Crush pursuant to a
"take-or-pay contract" that "require[d]" Baker Hughes "to pay a specified price for a specified volume of frac sand each month." According to the complaint though, on
November 13, 2012

per share, or 25%, on extremely high trading volume of more than 3.3 million shares trading.
