INVESTOR ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Shareholders Who Have Losses in Excess of $100,000 from Investment in PG&E Corporation to Contact Brower Piven before the Lead Plaintiff Deadline in Class Action Lawsuit

STEVENSON, Md.--()--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) (“PG&E” or the “Company”) securities during the period between April 29, 2015 and June 8, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until August 13, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in PG&E securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that PG&E had failed to maintain electricity transmission and distribution networks in compliance with safety requirements and regulations promulgated under state law, and its electricity networks would cause numerous wildfires in California.

According to the complaint, following a June 9, 2018 article reporting that following an investigation into the causes of wildfires in October 2017, California’s fire agency found evidence of alleged violations of law by PG&E in connection with the fires and that PG&E equipment caused at least 12 of the wine country blazes, the value of PG&E shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in PG&E securities purchased on or after April 29, 2015 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.

You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
