According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Philip Morris was suffering a more serious decline in cigarette and e-cigarette sales during the first quarter of 2018 than the Company had led investors to believe. In fact, the Company’s sales initiatives, once considered promising, had stalled. Philip Morris was actually facing significant challenges in key markets. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements about its business operations and prospects were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Philip Morris, investors suffered damages.
Join the case to recover your losses.
