(“Jones Soda” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:JSDA) between November 1, 2006, and August 2, 2007, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The Complaint charges Jones Soda and certain of the Company’s executive officers and directors with violations of federal securities laws.
Among other things, plaintiff claims that defendants’ material omissions and dissemination of materially false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s business, operations and prospects caused Jones Soda’s stock price to become artificially inflated, inflicting damages on investors. Jones Soda Co. engages in the development, production, marketing and distribution of beverages primarily in the United States and Canada. Its products include Jones Pure Cane Soda, Jones Organics, and Jones Energy, among others. The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period defendants issued positive statements touting distribution and production agreements with numerous major retailers. Defendants stated that each of these agreements was cemented and that the Company was poised to reap financial benefits. These statements further led the market to believe that major retailers had stocked the Company’s sodas on their shelves for sale, or that the sodas would be stocked on these retailers’
Then, on August 3, 2007, the Company announced that earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2007 were well below Wall Street’s expectations, and that the Company’s canned products were not on enough store shelves in time for the peak summer season sales, which began during the Memorial Day weekend. As a result of this news, the price of Jones Soda stock plummeted nearly 23 percent in after hours trading to $11.70 a share.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of Class members and is represented by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, a law firm with significant experience in prosecuting class actions, and substantial expertise in actions involving corporate fraud.
