Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of Primero Mining Corp. (“Primero” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PPP) between October 5, 2012 and February 3, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects.  As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

According to the Complaint, on February 3, 2016, Primero disclosed that its Mexican subsidiary, Primero Empresa Minera, S.A. de C.V., received a legal claim from the Mexican tax authorities, Servicio de Administración Tributaria (“SAT”), seeking to nullify the Advance Pricing Agreement issued by SAT in 2012.

On this news, shares of Primero dropped over 28%, closing at $1.89 per share on February 4, 2015, on heavy trading volume.
