Filed Against Yum! Brands, Inc.
NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2013
NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising - Bronstein,
Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a class action suit was filed in the
United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf
of purchasers of Yum! Brands, Inc. ("Yum" or the "Company") (NYSE: YUM)
between October 9, 2012 and January 7, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period").
On November 23, 2012, reports in the Chinese media claimed that certain of the
Company's chicken suppliers fed toxic chemicals to chickens sold to KFC China.
Then on January 7, 2013, YUM revealed in a filing with the SEC the Company
lowered its China Division's full-year 2012 guidance for same-store sales, due
to publicity surrounding the Chinese government's review of Yum's poultry
supply. As a result of these disclosures, on January 8, 2013 Yum shares
dropped 5%, from $67.89 per share to as low as $64.40 per share.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period the defendants
misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) slowing economic trends in
China were stronger than reported and could not support Yum's China Division's
forecasted sales results or the Company's increased earnings-per-share growth;
(2) defendants knew but concealed that the Company's own food safety
inspections had already discovered high levels of antibiotics and other
illegal drugs and/or chemicals in chickens purchased from a Chinese supplier
-- Shandong Liuhe Group; and (3) Yum had continued to buy products from
Shandong Liuhe Group until as late as August 2012.
No Class has yet been certified in the above action. If you wish to review a
