SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in Forterra, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRTA) of the October 13, 2017 Lead Plaintiff deadline in the pending securities class action.

On or about October 21, 2016 Defendants priced the Company's initial public offering ("IPO") for the issuance of 18.42 million shares at $18.00 per share. Since then, the price of Forterra shares has fallen to close at $4.44 per share on August 14, 2017.
The lawsuit alleges that the IPO Registration Statement and Prospectus omitted disclosures of information that reasonable investors would consider important such as failure to accrue expenses leading up to the IPO and material weaknesses in internal controls relating to "bill-and-hold" revenue transactions.
"Among other things, we're focused on are the Defendants' omissions from the IPO Prospectus that appear to have wiped out 75% of shareholder value since late October 2016," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

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.
