(NasdaqGS: FRED), if they purchased the Company’s securities between December 20, 2016 and June 28, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

About the Lawsuit

Fred’s and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On June 29, 2017, the market was stunned by the announcement that the merger between Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. and Rite Aid Corp. had been terminated along with a collaborative Asset Purchase Agreement with the Company to buy 865 Rite Aid stores for $950 million previously reached in order to help obtain FTC approval and complete the Merger.

On this news, the price of Fred’s, Inc.’s shares plummeted.

The case is Zaller v. Fred’s Inc. et al, 2:19cv2415.
