Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have until August 15, 2022 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against Unilever PLC (NYSE: UL), if they purchased the Company’s American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) between September 2, 2020 and July 21, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). This action is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

About the Lawsuit
Unilever and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On July 19, 2021, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Ben & Jerry’s, announced a resolution to end sales of its ice cream in “Occupied Palestinian Territory” upon the expiration of the current licensing agreement by which its products had been distributed in Israel for decades. Then, on July 22, 2021, media sources reported that the states of Texas and Florida were investigating Ben & Jerry’s actions for possible violations of the states’ Anti-BDS (boycotts, divestment, and sanctions of Israel) legislation.
On this news, ADRs of Unilever fell $3.19 per share, or approximately 5.4%.
The case is City of St. Clair Shores Police and Fire Retirement System v. Unilever PLC, et al., No. 22-cv-05011.
