CAT NOTICE: Rosen Law Firm Reminds Caterpillar, Inc. Investors of Important Deadline in Class Action – CAT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of Caterpillar, Inc. securities (CAT) from February 19, 2013 through March 1, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”) of the important May 2, 2017 lead plaintiff deadline in the class action. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Caterpillar investors under the federal securities laws.

To join the Caterpillar class action, go to http://rosenlegal.com/cases-1068.html or call Phillip Kim, Esq. or Kevin Chan, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or kchan@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.

The complaint alleges that defendants during the Class Period made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Caterpillar unlawfully used foreign subsidiaries to avoid paying billions of dollars in U.S. taxes; (2) discovery of such conduct would subject Caterpillar to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential criminal sanctions; and (3) as a result, Caterpillar’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On March 2, 2017, law enforcement officials raided Caterpillar’s facilities in Peoria, Illinois. Later that day, Caterpillar indicated that it believed the raid is related to, among other things, export filings of its Swiss subsidiary Caterpillar SARL. On this news, shares of Caterpillar fell $4.22 or 4.28% to close at $94.36 per share on March 2, 2017, damaging investors.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 2, 2017. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
