NEW YORK, June 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights firm, reminds purchasers of Walgreen, Co. ("Walgreens") (Nasdaq:WBA) securities from March 25, 2014 through August 5, 2014 of the important June 9, 2015 lead plaintiff deadline in the class action. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Walgreens investors under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.

The lawsuit alleges that Walgreens made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts pertaining to the Company's business and prospects, including the purported benefits of Walgreens' strategic partnership with Alliance Boots GmbH. Specifically, the Company publicly announced goals for fiscal year 2016 of $1 billion in combined synergies and $9 to $9.5 billion in adjusted earnings before interest and taxes ("EBIT") for the combined entity, but concealed a earnings shortfall of $1.8 to $2.3 billion for fiscal year 2016 and the reasons for the shortfall from the investing public.

On August 4, 2014, the Company announced that its CFO Wade Miquelon would be resigning. Then, on August 6, 2014, the Company lowered the fiscal year 2016 EBIT target to $7.2 billion, $1.8 billion below the low-end and $2.3 billion below the high-end of the range that they had previously announced to investors. On this news, shares of Walgreens fell sharply, falling from $69.12 per share on August 5, 2014 to close at $59.21 per share on August 6, 2014, damaging investors.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 9, 2015.
