An article published in The Wall Street Journal on May 14, 2016 reported that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating Southern Company's financial controls and disclosures. The article also reported that a whistleblower alleges that the company's public disclosures were baselessly positive. A securities class action lawsuit has been filed against the Company in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia in connection with the foregoing.
Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
