Hecla Mining Company (HL)
Class Period:
March 19, 2018 - May 8, 2019
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: July 23, 2019
Join the action: https://www.zlk.com/pslra-1/hecla-mining-company-loss-form?wire=3 

About the lawsuit: Throughout the class period, Hecla Mining Company allegedly made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Nevada operations were hemorrhaging cash due to a multitude of material problems identified by Defendants during Hecla’s extensive due diligence of the Nevada mines before the  Class Period, and (b) as a result of these material problems, Defendants had no reasonable basis for their representations that the Nevada operations would be in a position to have positive or self-funding cash flow.

Anheuser-Busch Inbev Sa/Nv (BUD)
Class Period:
March 1, 2018 - October 24, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 20, 2019
Join the action: https://www.zlk.com/pslra-1/anheuser-busch-inbev-sa-nv-loss-form?wire=3 

According to the filed complaint, Defendants issued a steady stream of materially false and misleading reassurances about Anheuser Busch’s deleveraging efforts, cost cutting measures, EBITDA growth, the sufficiency of its liquidity and its debt maturity profile during the Class Period. These positive statements by Defendants created a false impression and materially misled investors about the Company’s finances, including the  sustainability of Anheuser-Busch’s dividends. Once Defendants chose to speak about Anheuser-Busch’s finances, they had a duty to speak completely and truthfully, including speaking about those factors that were then having a material adverse effect on the Company’s deleveraging efforts.

Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 26, 2019
Join the action: https://www.zlk.com/pslra-1/eqt-corporation-loss-form?wire=3 

About the lawsuit: During the class period, EQT Corporation allegedly made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (1) land acquired by the Rice Energy merger was not contiguous with the Company’s previously held acreage, which reduced the purported synergy benefits; (2) the purported longer lateral wells were not feasible because of intervening third-party parcels or prior drilling by EQT, Rice, or third parties; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
