SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP alerts investors in Loma Negra Compania Industrial Argentina Sociedad Anonima (NYSE: LOMA) of the firm's investigation of possible disclosure violations related to Loma Negra's initial public offering ("IPO"). If you purchased Loma Negra American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") in or after the Company's November 2017 IPO and suffered losses contact Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP. For more information visit:

During early November 2017, Loma Negra closed its IPO and, together with its controlling and selling shareholder, issued over 53 million ADSs at $19.00 each.
On May 23, 2018, several Argentinian-based media sources began reporting that Argentina's National Commission of Competition Defense ("CNDC") was investigating that country's cement companies (of which Loma Negra was the largest) for price-fixing. Based on this news and on certain previous negative analyst reports, the price of Loma Negra ADSs fell to $12.99, or over 31% below the IPO price.
"We're focused on investors' losses and IPO statements that, if untrue or incomplete, could have misled Loma Negra investors," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
