According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Altria failed to conduct strong due diligence before taking a 35% stake JUUL. The Company did not inform investors about the marketing practices or true value of JUUL. Public scrutiny, negative publicity, and government pressure on JUUL, among other factors, were likely to negatively impact the Company's reputation and operations. Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading. When the market learned the truth about Altria, investors suffered damages.
