Background on the Linn Energy Securities Class LitigationThe complaint charges Linn Energy and certain of its officers with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Linn Energy is an independent oil and natural gas development company that works to acquire, develop, and maximize cash flow from its portfolio of long-life oil and natural gas assets. Linn Energy became a publicly-traded entity in 2006, when it issued “units” representing its limited liability company interests. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose material adverse facts about Linn Energy’s operations and business. Specifically, defendants fraudulently misrepresented the true risks associated with Linn Energy’s ability to continue to issue stable or increasing cash distributions. Defendants allegedly did so by disseminating key financial metrics to investors that deceptively excluded the cost of options the Company used to hedge against fluctuations in the price of oil and natural gas, but included the proceeds it received from the sale or exercise of such options.
