SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims On Behalf of Investors of Whole Foods Market, Inc. – WFM
NEW YORK, NY / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / July 30, 2015 /Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Whole Foods Markets, Inc. (“Whole Foods” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: WFM). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Whole Foods and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On July 29, 2015, post-market, the organic grocer released lower-than-expected quarterly earnings and fourth-quarter guidance, which the company attributed in part to the news that New York City officials had found that the company was overcharging customers. “There’s no magic bullet for restoring whatever trust was lost,” co-CEO Walter Robb said during a call with analysts and investors.
On this news, the company’s shares have fallen as much as 4.90, or 12%, on intraday trading on July 30, 2015.
