The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business operations, financial condition and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges (a) that the Company improperly advertised, marketed and promoted its Monster Energy® brand of energy drinks; and (b) that as a result, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As a result of defendants' false and misleading statements, the Company's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

On this news, shares of Monster stock declined over 11%, closing at $54.27 per share on August 10, 2012 on heavy volume.
