DEADLINE ALERT: Brower Piven Alerts Shareholders Of Approaching Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Those With Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In Tyson Foods, Inc. To Contact The Firm
The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN) ("Tyson" or the "Company") securities during the period between November 23, 2015 and October 6, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until December 16, 2016 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Tyson securities during the Class Period. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action. The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period that Tyson systematically colluded with several of its industry peers to fix prices in the broiler-chicken market, which constituted a violation of federal antitrust laws, and the Company's segment revenues were the result of illegal conduct. According to the complaint, following a September 2, 2016 filing of an antitrust class action complaint by Maplevale Farms, Inc. alleging that Tyson and other companies conspired to manipulate prices, and an October 7, 2016 downgrade by Pivotal Research from "Hold" to "Sell" due to the lawsuit and the allegations, the value of Tyson shares declined significantly.
