Filing Date: March 24, 2016

According to the Complaint, on or about March 6, 2015, Sprouts conducted the registered public sale of the Selling Stockholders remaining shares of Sprouts common stock. Plaintiff and other members of the Class purchased Sprouts common stock pursuant to the Offering Documents.

The Complaint alleges the Offering Documents were negligently prepared, and, as a result,contained untrue statements of material facts and/or omitted to state facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading. Specifically, the Offering Documents incorporated by reference, among other documents, the Company's 2014 10-K. However, the Offering Documents failed to offer any qualifying discussion of the Company's statements regarding produce price deflation set forth in the 2014 10-K, or any discussion of then-current trends in price deflation and its effects on the Company's revenue growth.

On March 24, 2017, the Court granted a Motion to Remand this case to the Maricopa County Superior Court.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
