On September 18, 2020, a lawsuit was filed against certain directors and officers of Monster Beverage Corporation (“Monster Beverage”). The plaintiff alleged, among other things, that certain directors and officers of Monster Beverage breached their fiduciary duties to the Company by allowing others to cause, or themselves causing, the Company to hide discrimination and failing to ensure sufficient diversity, including by permitting conduct to occur that was inconsistent with statements made in the Company’s policies and disclosures, and failing to ensure the Company’s compliance with laws regarding diversity and anti-discrimination.  The complaint also asserts claims for abuse of control, unjust enrichment, and violation of Section 14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The complaint seeks from certain directors and officers of Monster Beverage an unspecified amount of damages, restitution, punitive damages and costs to be paid to the Company, and seeks to require the Company to adopt corporate governance reforms, and other equitable relief. 

On January 15, 2021, Monster Beverage, who is a nominal defendant, and certain of its directors and officers filed motions to dismiss the complaint. Those motions are scheduled for hearing in the 2021 second quarter.
