NEW YORK, July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announces that class action lawsuits have commenced on behalf of shareholders of the following publicly-traded companies. Shareholders interested in serving as lead plaintiff have until the deadlines listed to petition the court; further details about the cases can be found at the links provided.
National Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ:FIZZ)
Class Period: July 17, 2014 and July 3, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 17, 2018
The complaint alleges that throughout the class period Defendants issued materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) National Beverage’s sales claims and its supposed “proprietary techniques” lacked a verifiable basis; (2) the Company’s Chairman and CEO engaged in a pattern of sexual misconduct between 2014 and 2016; and (3) as a result, National Beverage’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On May 4, 2017, National Beverage issued a press release stating that it “employs methods that no other company does in this area—VPO (velocity per outlet) and VPC (velocity per capita).” National Beverage asserted that it “utilize[s] two proprietary techniques to magnify these measures and this creates growth never before thought possible.” Then on June 26, 2018 the Wall Street Journal reported that National Beverage had declined to provide the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission with requested sales figures to clarify their sales claims. Then on July 3, 2018, the Wall Street Journal published an article reporting that two pilots had filed lawsuits alleging that National Beverage’s CEO had sexually harassed them.

QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM)
Class Period: January 31, 2018 – March 12, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 7, 2018
During the class period, Qualcomm had secretly filed a unilateral notice with CFIUS in order to frustrate Broadcom’s attempt to acquire the Company; and investors suffered damages as a result of defendants’ wrongful acts and omissions. On March 5, 2018, Broadcom announced that Qualcomm had filed a voluntary request for The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States to initiate an investigation into Broadcom’s actions. Broadcom referred to this as a “blatant, desperate act by Qualcomm to entrench its incumbent board of directors and prevent its own stockholders from voting for Broadcom’s independent director nominees.”
