plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class
Period that Exide was polluting the environment with potentially fatal levels
of arsenic and exposing nearly 110,000 residents near its Vernon, California
battery recycling facility to dangerously high levels of pollutants, that
Exide knew that based on actual and projected revenues and expenses the
Company would be unable to meet its debt repayment obligations and other
pledges under its debt agreements and indentures, and that the Company knew
that its environmental liabilities, debt obligations and potential insolvency
did not support its statements to investors concerning the Company's
financials and quarterly guidance, or the inflated share price targets being
modeled by the investment community.According to the complaint, following an
April 4, 2013 report by that Exide had hired financial advisory
firm Lazard Ltd. and the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, both
bankruptcy experts, to advise on its financial restructuring after prior
restructuring efforts stalled, the value of Exide shares declined
