The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Loma Negra American Depository Shares (“ADS”) pursuant or traceable to the Company’s November 2017 IPO.  The case, Carmona v. Loma Negra Compania Industrial Argentina Sociedad Anonima, et al., No. 18-cv-11323, was filed on December 5, 2018 and has been assigned to Judge Louis Lee Stanton.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by downplaying and misrepresenting Loma Negra’s exposure to a massive, ongoing corruption scandal engulfing its majority owner in its Registration Statement; misrepresenting a purported increased demand for Loma Negra’s cement and other products as a result of economic growth and government funding for public works projects in Argentina; and misrepresenting events and trends in the Argentinian economy, as well as Loma Negra’s exposure.

Specifically, as the truth about the Company’s misrepresentations and omissions in the Registration Statement began to emerge, the Company’s share price fell significantly below its offering price—over 40% below its $19 offering as of December 5, 2018. 

The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision to serve as a lead plaintiff or not. 

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP also encourages anyone with information regarding Loma Negra’s conduct to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
