SHAREHOLDER ALERT - Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors of Class Action Against The Southern Company (SO) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline: March 24, 2017

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 8, 2017 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against The Southern Company ("Southern Company" or the "Company") (SO) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Southern Company securities between April 25, 2012 and October 29, 2013, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/so.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose adverse information about the progress of the Kemper Plant, reassuring investors that the project would be completed by the critical May 2014 deadline, even after cost overruns and other delays began to materialize. Once the true details were made known to the investing public, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, you can visit the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/so, or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in Southern Company, you have until March 24, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
