CLASS ACTION ALERT: Brower Piven Notifies Investors of Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Those Who Have Significant Losses From Investment In Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE: HON) To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline
STEVENSON, Md., Nov. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE: HON) (“Honeywell” or the “Company”) securities during the period between February 9, 2018 and October 19, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until January 2, 2019 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Honeywell securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that Honeywell’s Bendix Friction Materials (“Bendix”) asbestos-related liability was greater than initially reported and the Company maintained improper accounting practices in connection with its Bendix asbestos-related liability.
According to the complaint, following an October 19, 2018 press release announcing that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Corporate Finance has reviewed Honeywell’s prior accounting for liability for unasserted Bendix-related asbestos claims and that it opened an investigation and that the Company’s revised estimated asbestos-related liabilities are $2,610 million, the value of Honeywell shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Honeywell securities purchased on or after February 9, 2018 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.

If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
