The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Linn made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Company engaged in improper accounting for its hedging strategy; (b) the Company overstated the cash flow available for distribution to unit holders by using non-GAAP financial measures to account for certain derivatives; and (c) the Company's energy production was not increasing, despite its heavy capital expenditures.

On July 1, 2013, Linn announced that it is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Company's hedging strategies, use of non-GAAP financial measures, and the proposed acquisition of Berry Petroleum Company by Linn affiliate LinnCo, LLC. Upon this news, shares of Linn stock fell from a close of $33.29 per share on July 1, 2013, to a close of $27.05 per share the following day.
