SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses Investing In Primero Mining Corp. To Contact The Firm Before Imminent Lead Plaintiff Deadline


By Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 12, 2016 / Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Primero Mining Corp. (“Primero” or the “Company”) (NYSE:PPP) of the April 15, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Primero securities between October 5, 2012 and February 3, 2016 (the “Class Period”). The case, Loftus v. Primero Mining Corp. et al, No. 2:16-cv-01034 was filed on February 15, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Beverly Reid O’Connell.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose the issues of tax compliance of Primero’s Mexican subsidiary, Primero Empresa Minera, S.A. de C.V.

Specifically, on February 3, 2016, Primero disclosed that Servicio de Administración Tributaria (“SAT”), Mexico’s tax authority, filed a legal claim against the Company’s Mexican subsidiary in order to nullify the Advance Pricing Agreement (“APA”) filed by Primero in October 2011 and issued by the SAT in 2012; the APA was submitted to the SAT to confirm that the Company was properly recording revenue and taxes from sales under Primero’s silver purchase agreement with Silver Wheaton Corp.

After the announcement, Primero’s share price fell from $2.63 per share on February 3, 2016 to a closing price of $1.89 per share on February 4, 2016 – a $0.74 or 28.1% drop.
