About the Lawsuit

Southern Company and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On October 30, 2013, Southern Company announced its third quarter 2013 financial results, disclosing an after-tax charge of $93 million "related to increased cost estimates for the construction" of a "clean coal" plant to be built in Kemper County, Mississippi (the "Kemper Plant") by its subsidiary, Mississippi Power. Southern Company also disclosed in an earnings conference call the same day that the in-service date for the Kemper Plant would be delayed until year-end 2014.

On this news, the price of Southern Company's shares plummeted.
