Class Action Filing in the United States
Veolia Environnement has become aware that a purported class action complaint has been filed against the Company and certain of its current and former officers, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
The complaint alleges that certain financial communications of the Company between 2007 and 2011 were misleading, purportedly resulting in violations of Section 10(b) of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and other federal securities laws.
The complaint has not been served on the Company. However, Veolia considers that any allegation that its financial communications may have been misleading is without merit, and the Company intends to seek the dismissal of the complaint.
