According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Caesarstone Sdot-Yam Ltd (NASDAQ:CSTE) common shares between March 25, 2013 and August 18, 2015, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between March 25, 2013 and August 18, 2015 Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the cost of quartz rose substantially by approximately 20% in 2014 while Caesarstone Sdot-Yam Ltd claimed in SEC filings the impact of the price increase was just 4%, that independent lab tests demonstrate that Caesarstone Sdot-Yam Ltd's samples contained less quartz than advertised, that Caesarstone Sdot-Yam Ltd's reported consolidated margins, gross margins, and EBITDA were overstated, that the extent of and risk posed by a growing number of lawsuits for approximately 60 silicosis-related injuries or deaths suffered by workers and fabricators of its product in Israel was understated, that the impact recent OSHA warnings regarding silicosis would have on the opening of a new U.S. facility and associated costs, that recent inspection reports revealed audit deficiencies related to revenue and inventory controls, and that as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Caesarstone Sdot-Yam Ltd's business, operations, and prospects were allegedly false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
