TREEHOUSE INVESTIGATION INITIATED by Former Louisiana Attorney General: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates the Officers and Directors of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. - THS

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (THS).

Beginning in early 2016 and throughout the year, the Company repeatedly touted many aspects of its performance pertaining to its private label business, recent acquisitions and overall financial condition. Then, on November 3, 2016, the Company disclosed a litany of negative information, including that its private brands business had failed to meet expectations; its 2016 guidance was excessive and would be lowered; its integration strategy had proven to be inadequate; it was closing its British Columbia facility; and its President had resigned.

Thereafter, the Company and certain of its executives were sued in a securities class action lawsuit, charging them with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. Recently, the court presiding over that case denied the Company’s motion to dismiss, allowing the case to move forward.

KSF’s investigation is focusing on whether TreeHouse’s officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to TreeHouse’s shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
