LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Goldberg Law PC, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Caterpillar Inc. (“Caterpillar” or the “Company”) (CAT). Investors who purchased shares between February 19, 2013 and March 1, 2017 inclusive (the “Class Period”) are encouraged to contact the firm in advance of the May 2, 2017 lead plaintiff motion deadline.

The class in this case has not yet been certified, and until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. If you choose to take no action, you can remain an absent class member.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Caterpillar issued materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company unlawfully used foreign subsidiaries to avoid paying billions of dollars in U.S. taxes; that discovery of such conduct would subject Caterpillar to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential criminal sanctions; and that 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. The Company indicated that it believed the raid is related to export filings of its Swiss subsidiary Caterpillar SARL. When this news was announced to the public, shares of Caterpillar fell in value, causing investors harm.
