Finally, on July 1, 2013, Linn disclosed in an amended filing with the SEC that the SEC had opened an informal investigation into the Company’s non-GAAP accounting practices, its hedging strategy and the proposed acquisition of Berry jointly with its affiliate, LinnCo LLC. Following this revelation, the Company’s per unit market price fell $10.50 per unit, or 31.5%, down to a close of $22.79 per unit on July 3, 2013.If you purchased Linn master limited partnership units during the Class Period, you may request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff by September 9, 2013. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as “lead plaintiff.” Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Wolf Haldenstein, or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action. Wolf Haldenstein has extensive experience in the prosecution of securities class actions and derivative litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts across the country.
