The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP) who purchased shares between February 14, 2017 and February 12, 2019. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the Molson Coors lawsuit alleges that (1) Molson Coors failed to properly reconcile the outside basis deferred income tax liability for Molson Coors’ investment in its MillerCoors, LLC partnership; (2) consequently, Molson Coors misreported net income in its consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ending December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, resulting in an overall downward revision to net income; (3) Molson Coors lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (4) as a result, defendants’ statements about Molson Coors’ business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
Shareholders have until April 16, 2019 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
