The Southern Company (SO) Information Request Form

The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the Northern District of Georgia on behalf of investors who purchased The Southern Company (NYSE: SO) securities between April 25, 2012 and October 29, 2013.

According to the complaint, during the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding the progress of the Company’s Kemper Plant, assuring investors that the project would be completed by the critical May 2014 deadline, even when cost overruns and other delays began to materialize. On October 30, 2013, the Company announced its third quarter 2013 financial results, disclosing an after-tax charge of $93 million “related to increased cost estimates for the construction” of the Kemper Plant. In addition, defendants disclosed in an earnings conference call the same day that the in-service date for the Kemper Plant would be delayed until year-end 2014. As a result of these revelations, the price of The Southern Company common stock declined significantly.

If you suffered a loss in Southern Company you have until March 24, 2017 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.
