UPCOMING DEADLINE: The Law Offices of Vincent Wong Notify Investors of Class Action Involving Calavo Growers, Inc. and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of March 23, 2015

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the Central District of California on behalf of investors who purchased Calavo Growers, Inc. ("Calavo" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CVGW) securities between March 5, 2012 and January 14, 2015.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants concealed that: (a) the Company failed to maintain an accurately valued contingent consideration pursuant to its acquisition of Renaissance Food Group, LLC; (b) Calavo overstated its non-cash operating expenses; (c) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (d) as a result, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading.

On January 15, 2015, Calavo announced it will record a non-cash charge totaling $88.9 million before tax—which the Company will treat as amortization expense—related to the misstatement in its treatment of contingent consideration.

If you suffered a loss in Calavo you have until March 23, 2015 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
