According to the lawsuit, defendants during the Class Period made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) KBR’s United Kingdom subsidiaries had violated applicable bribery and corruption laws; and (2) as a result, KBR’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On April 28, 2017, the United Kingdom’s Serious Fraud Office confirmed it is investigating “the activities of KBR’s UK subsidiaries, their officers, employees and agents for suspected offences of bribery and corruption.” On this news, shares of KBR fell $1.43 per share or over 9% to close at $14.05 per share on April 28, 2017, damaging investors.
