Investor Alert: Kaplan Fox Investigates Exelon Corp.

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors who purchased shares of Exelon Corporation ("Exelon" or the "Company") (EXC).

On October 15, 2019, after the market closed, Exelon announced the immediate retirement of Anne Pramaggiore, the Company's Senior Executive Vice President and CEO.  According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the abrupt departure of Pramaggiore occurred amid federal investigations and subpoenas concerning lobbying activities and an expanding investigation of Senator Martin Sandoval.  According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Pramaggiore previously ran Commonwealth Edison ("ComEd"), Exelon's Chicago-based utility, which is "among the most prominent lobbyists in Springfield because it has a legal monopoly on power delivery in northern Illinois and must follow rates and rules set by the state."

On October 16, 2019, Exelon's shares fell $2.15 per share, about 4.6%, to close at $44.91 per share.

Then, on October 31, 2019, the Company filed its quarterly report on Form 10-K with the SEC in which it disclosed that "[o]n October 22, 2019, the SEC notified Exelon and ComEd that it has also opened an investigation into their lobbying activities."

On October 31, 2019, Exelon's shares fell by about $1.50 per share, more than 3%, in midday trading.
