NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a securities class action has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on behalf of those who purchased shares of McDermott International, Inc. ("McDermott or the Company") (NYSE: MDR), during the period between November 6, 2012 and August 5, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint charges the defendants with violations of federal securities laws.  Specifically the complaint alleges that Defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company was experiencing weaknesses in its project bidding and execution; (ii) the Company was engaging in poor risk evaluation; (iii) the Company had been experiencing poor project management; (iv) the Company was experiencing material losses in its Middle East, Asia Pacific and Atlantic segments; and (v) based upon the above, the Defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company during the Class Period.
