Investors who have losses of $100,000 or more are encouraged to contact the firm for information concerning a lead plaintiff position in the class action suit and have until May 7, 2013 to file a motion with the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period the defendants made false and/or misleading statements or failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Company and its President and Chief Executive Officer, Barry Welch, made false and misleading statements regarding the sustainability of Atlantic Power's stock dividend, which was regarded by the Company as one of its corporate objectives.
On February 28, 2013 the Company disclosed that it was cutting its monthly dividend starting in March 2013 by more than 50%. According to the Company, even though the Company's February 2013 dividend was Cdn$0.09583, "the Board, with management's recommendation, unanimously approved a reduction in the annual dividend level to Cdn$0.40 per share, or Cdn$0.03333 per share on a monthly basis."
