On July 1, 2015, B&W began trading independently as a public company after spinning off from The Babcock & Wilcox Company by way of distribution of shares of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc common stock to holders of the Company's former parent. The distribution of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc common stock was made on June 30, 2015, and consisted of one share of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc common stock for every two shares of the former parent's common stock as of the record date, June 18, 2015.

The plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc (NYSE:BW) common shares between July 1, 2015 and February 28, 2017, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between July 1, 2015 and February 28, 2017, the Company was experiencing significant, undisclosed problems in its Renewable segment.
