The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee on behalf of investors who purchased Fred's, Inc. (NASDAQGS: FRED) securities between December 20, 2016 and June 28, 2017.
According to the Fred's lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants made numerous materially false and misleading statements concerning the level of regulatory risk faced by the Original Merger and the Revised Merger which would ultimately cause the termination of the Fred’s Asset Purchase Agreement. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements: (i) downplaying or disputing contrary reports from journalists signaling regulatory turbulence in closing the merger; (ii) representing that inside knowledge of the FTC gave confidence that the deal would close.
If you suffered a loss in Fred's you have until August 27, 2019 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
