Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP Files Class Action Suit Against Chemical and Mining Company of Chile Inc

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP announced that a class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Chemical and Mining Company of Chile Inc. (SQM) American Depositary Shares during the period between June 30, 2010 and March 17, 2015 (class period). The complaint charges SQM and certain of its officers and/or directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that throughout the class period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) money from SQM was channeled illicitly to electoral campaigns for Chilean politicians and political parties as far back as 2009; (ii) SQM had filed millions of dollars worth of fictitious tax receipts with Chilean authorities in order to conceal bribery payments from at least 2009 through fiscal 2014; (iii) the company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, the company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times and not prepared in accordance with applicable accounting principles. As a result of these false and misleading statements and/or omissions, the price of SQM ADSs was artificially inflated during the class period, reaching a high of over $66.00 per ADS in July 2011. Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of SQM ADSs during the class period.
