|Company:||Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc|
|Class Period:||Feb-1-12 to Jul-19-12|
|Lead Plaintiff Deadline:||Oct-28-12|
|Court:||District of Colorado|
The Complaint alleges that Chipotle and certain of its officers and directors violated the federal securities laws. The Complaint alleges that defendants issued misleading statements regarding the Company's business and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose the following: (i) Chipotle did not have the pricing power to implement price increases sufficient to offset rising food costs and, as a result, the Company's margins would be under pressure as Chipotle would be unable to pass these commodity costs off to the consumers; (ii) demand for Chipotle was slowing due to the economy and increased competition and could not support the Company's aggressive 2012 earnings forecasts; and (iii) Chipotle was experiencing a deceleration of growth as it was becoming a mature company.
On July 19, 2012, Chipotle issued a press release announcing its second quarter 2012 earnings results, reporting disappointing revenue results and cautious guidance for the year. On this news, Chipotle stock fell $86.88 to close at $316.98 per share on July 20, 2012, a decline of 22%.
