What is a Lead Plaintiff?

The lead plaintiff is a court-appointed representative of a class of purchasers of securities in a class action under the federal securities fraud laws. The lead plaintiff’s responsibilities include selecting the attorneys who will represent the class in the lawsuit, and if necessary, providing testimony at trial.

Background on Lamb Weston Holdings, Inc.

Lamb Weston, based in Eagle, Idaho, distributes and markets frozen potato products globally.

The Securities Fraud Claims

On July 25, 2023, Lamb Weston completed the design of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software system, which was intended to connect important aspects of its business and operations to improve efficiency through increased automation. In November 2023, the company transitioned some of its previous systems to the new ERP system. Defendants claimed the Company had experienced only the “usual bumps” in the implementation of the ERP system and told investors that its guidance for fiscal 2024 accounted for the financial impact of the system’s deployment.

The statements made during the Class Period were false. The Defendants knew of significant problems in the new ERP system’s functionality. Despite this, Lamb Weston proceeded with the implementation, affecting its business and operations. As a result, the company’s statements lacked a reasonable factual basis, leading to artificially inflated stock prices.

On April 4, 2024, Lamb Weston revealed that it faced major challenges while implementing its new ERP system. The problematic roll-out resulted in a $135 million loss in sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024, and the company had to lower its sales guidance for the full fiscal year by $330 million. On this news, the price of Lamb Weston stock declined by $19.59 per share or over 19%.
