There is no cost or obligation for you.

The Waste Management Class Action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the DOJ advised Waste Management that would require Waste Management to divest itself of significantly more assets than the $200 million antitrust revenue threshold; (ii) as a result, the Merger would not be completed on the Completion Date; and (iii) the Notes would be subject to a mandatory redemption at 101% of par.

A lead plaintiff will act on behalf of all other class members to lead the Waste Management class action. The lead plaintiff may select a law firm of their choice to litigate the class action. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery from the Waste Management class action does not depend on its status as lead plaintiff.
