The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of August 13th Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against PG&E Corporation (PCG)

August 9, 2018

BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 9, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the August 13, 2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased PG&E Corporation (“PG&E” or the “Company) (NYSE: PCG ) securities between April 29, 2015, and June 8, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). PG&E investors have until  August 13, 2018  to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their PG&E investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On June 8, 2018, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection announced that its investigators determined that 12 Northern California wildfires that occurred in late 2017 were caused by PG&E equipment. On this news, PG&E’s share price fell more than 4% on June 11, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (i) PG&E had failed to maintain electricity transmission and distribution networks in compliance with safety requirements and regulations promulgated under state law; (ii) consequently, PG&E was in violation of state law regulation; (iii) PG&E’s electricity networks would cause numerous wildfires in California; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about the Company’s business and operations were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of PG&E during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than  August 13, 2018 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020, by telephone at 215-638-4847, toll-free at 888-638-4847, or by email to  howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at  www.howardsmithlaw.com.
