NEW YORK, November 6, 2018 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST) securities between June 6, 2018 and October 25, 2018 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until January 4, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Costco lacked effective internal control over financial reporting; (2) consequently, defendants’ statements about Costco’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
