INVESTOR ALERT: Kirby McInerney LLP Reminds Investors That a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Mueller Water Products, Inc. and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm Before June 10

May 5, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 5, 2019--The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of those who acquired Mueller Water Products, Inc. (“Mueller Water Products” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MWA ) securities during the period from May 9, 2016 to August 6, 2018 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until June 10, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that Mueller Water Products made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (i) that the Company lacked adequate testing for product quality; (ii) that certain products with radio components were susceptible to fail prematurely; (iii) that, as a result, the Company was reasonably likely to incur increased expenses, including warranty costs; (iv) that these costs would materially impact the Company’s financial statements; and (v) that the Company lacked adequate internal controls over warranty costs and estimates.

On April 27, 2017, Mueller Water Products disclosed that certain radio products produced by the Company’s Technologies segment between 2011 and 2014 had been failing prematurely, resulting in a $9.8 million warranty charge. On this news, Mueller Water Products’ share price fell $1.43 per share, or 11.28%, to close at $11.25 on April 28, 2017.

Then, on August 6, 2018, Mueller Water Products reported a $14.1 million warranty charge. On this news, Mueller Water Products’ share price fell $0.75 per share, or 6%, to close at $11.74 on August 7, 2018.
