(VALE) Vale S.A. - Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Class Action Update & Deadline Alert - March 29, 2019

March 7, 2019

NEW YORK, March 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Vale S.A. (“Vale” or the “Company”) (NYSE: VALE) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Vale securities between April 13, 2018 through January 28, 2019, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: www.bgandg.com/vale.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Complaint alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Vale had failed to adequately assess the risk and damage potential of a dam breach at its Feijão iron ore mine; (2) Vale’s programs to mitigate health and safety incidents were inadequate; (3) consequently, several people were killed and hundreds more were reported as missing after Vale’s dam at its Feijão iron ore mine was breached; and (4) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On January 25, 2019, Reuters recounted how hundreds of people are missing after a tailings dam burst at Vale’s Feijão iron ore mine in Brazil. According to the report, the mine was in the process of being decommissioned. Following this news, Vale stock dropped $1.20 per share or over 8% on January 25, 2019. Then, on January 26, 2019, Reuters said that Brazil’s National Mining Agency had instructed the company to stop all operations at its Feijão mine and that prosecutors requested over $1.3 billion in Vale’s accounts to be frozen to pay for damages, with the expectation that more funds would be frozen in the future.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed.
