According to the Complaint, StoneMor made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose during the Class Period: (1) that the Company's reported non-GAAP financial metrics were materially misleading and concealed the truth about the Company's actual financial condition; and (2) that the primary purpose of the Company's regular debt and equity offerings were to pay distributions to unitholders rather than to pay down indebtedness under the Company's revolving credit facility as publicly stated. As a result, StoneMor's statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than January 20, 2017.
