Southern Company Investor Deadline Reminder: Hagens Berman Reminds Investors in The Southern Company of Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Throughout the class period, The Southern Company repeatedly assured investors that its Kemper “clean coal” plant would be complete by May 2014.  Then, in October 2013, Defendants disclosed that the Kemper project was delayed.

In July 2016, The New York Times reported on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s investigation into SO and disclosed information provided by a Company whistleblower and others.  The NYT reported (in part): “documents and recordings…and interviews with more than 30 current or former regulators, contractors, consultants or engineers who worked on the project, show that [Kemper’s] owners drastically understated the project’s cost and timetable, and repeatedly tried to conceal problems as they emerged.”

“We’re focused on failures of Southern’s checks and balances that were supposed to keep Kemper on track.  We’re also investigating Defendants’ alleged concealment of facts and how Kemper qualified for hundreds of millions of dollars in federal subsidies,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding SO should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC. For more information, call Reed Kathrein at 510-725-3000 or email SO@hbsslaw.com.
