Linn Energy is an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the acquisition and development of oil and natural gas properties. In its regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Linn Energy states that to reduce its exposure to oil and natural-gas price fluctuations and provide long-term cash flow predictability, Linn Energy engages in certain hedging strategies on a significant portion of its forecasted production. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants issued materially false and misleading statements or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company engaged in improper accounting for its hedging strategy, which included failing to properly treat certain hedging costs invested in derivatives as expenses; (2) by improperly using non-GAAP financial measures to account for certain derivatives, the Company was overstating its cash flow available for distribution to unit holders; and (3) the Company's energy production was not increasing, despite its heavy capital expenditures.

If you are a member of the Class described above you may move the Court no later than September 9, 2013 to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
