According to the complaint, during the expanded class period Defendants (a) misled investors about whether Kraft’s Zero Based Budgeting and other cost-saving measures would deliver increased profitability while simultaneously maintaining base business momentum and (b) did not disclose known trends that were negatively impacting Kraft’s organic sales growth and profitability.
On February 21, 2019, Defendants announced disappointing financial results for Q4 and FY 2018 and Kraft recorded impairment charges totaling $15.4 billion to reduce goodwill and intangible assets.
This news drove the price of Kraft shares down $13.23, or down about 27.5%, to close at $34.95 on February 22, 2019.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses, the extent to which Defendants’ statements about impairment analysis and asset values may have misled investors, and possible improper use of side agreements,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
