CVGW SHAREHOLDER ALERT: LEVI & KORSINSKY, LLP Notifies Investors of Class Action Against Calavo Growers, Inc. and Its Board of Directors and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of March 23, 2015 -- CVGW

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 28, 2015) - Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of investors who purchased Calavo Growers, Inc. ("Calavo" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CVGW) securities between March 5, 2012 and January 14, 2015.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants concealed that: (a) the Company failed to maintain an accurately valued contingent consideration pursuant to its acquisition of Renaissance Food Group, LLC; (b) Calavo overstated its non-cash operating expenses; (c) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (d) as a result, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading.

On January 15, 2015, Calavo announced it will record a non-cash charge totaling $88.9 million before tax -- which the Company will treat as amortization expense -- related to the misstatement in its treatment of contingent consideration.

If you suffered a loss in Calavo you have until March 23, 2015 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
