Saxena White P.A. Files a Securities Fraud Class Action

Legal Expert News Posted on

Saxena White P.A. announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who purchased Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited common stock on the New York Stock Exchange between April 29, 2010 and October 19, 2011, inclusive.

The action charges Agnico-Eagle and certain of its officers with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the Company's financial results were artificially inflated by virtue of the fact that the Company concealed material adverse problems present at its Goldex Mine which eventually forced the Company to shut down the mine and write off a $260 million investment in the mine.

On October 19, 2011, Agnico-Eagle issued a press release titled, "Agnico-Eagle's Goldex mine to suspend production during investigation and remediation of water inflow and ground stability issue; book value of Goldex to be written off." The Company announced that it was suspending mining operations and gold production at its Goldex mine in Val d'Or, Quebec effective immediately. This unexpected closure forced Company to take a $260 million write off of its investment. This news shocked the market, resulting in an 18.54% decline in the value of Agnico-Eagle's stock on October 19th after the news was revealed. On that day, the shares of Agnico-Eagle closed at $46.51, down $10.59, on unusually high New York Stock Exchange volume.
