NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.
The complaint alleges that defendants during the Class Period made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Booz Allen engaged in improper accounting practices in its contracts with the U.S. government; (2) consequently, Booz Allen's revenues derived from services provided to the U.S. government were inflated and unsustainable; (3) discovery of such going conduct would subject Booz Allen to heightened regulatory scrutiny, potential criminal sanctions, and jeopardize its business relationship with the U.S. government; and (4) as a result, Booz Allen's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On June 15, 2017, Booz Allen disclosed post-market that Booze Allen's subsidiary Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. on June 7, 2017 "was informed that the U.S. Department of Justice is conducting a civil and criminal investigation relating to certain elements of [its] cost accounting and indirect cost charging practices with the U.S. government." On this news, shares of Booz Allen fell $7.43 per share or over 18% to close at $31.90 per share on June 16, 2017, damaging investors.
