The complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants failed to disclose materially adverse facts about the Company's true financial condition, business, and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the Company failed to disclose that: (a) increased competition from retailers, such as Wal-Mart and Target Corp., was negatively impacting the Company's business and financial condition; (b) the Company's acquisition of Pathmark was disastrous, since Pathmark's operations were in far worse condition than previously represented to investors; (c) that A&P was not operating according to internal expectations; and (d) that as a result of the aforementioned, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements regarding the Company, its business prospects and operations.

If you are a member of the class and suffered a loss in A&P stock, you have until November 8, 2011 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.
