Levi & Korsinsky, LLP

October 9, 2019

Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announces that a MO class action lawsuit has been commenced on behalf of investors who purchased Altria Group, Inc. (MO) securities between December 20, 2018 and September 24, 2019. For more on the Altria Group Class Action please contact us today.

According to the Altria Group lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Altria had conducted insufficient due diligence into JUUL prior to the Company’s $12.8 billion investment, or 35% stake, in JUUL; (2) Altria consequently failed to inform investors, or account for, material risks associated with JUUL’s products and marketing practices, and the true value of JUUL and its products; (3) all of the foregoing, as well as mounting public scrutiny, negative publicity, and governmental pressure on e-vapor products and JUUL made it reasonably likely that Altria’s investment in JUUL would have a material negative impact on the Company’s reputation and operations; and (4) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
