The investigation focuses on allegations that certain statements issued by Monster Beverage between February 23, 2012 and August 9, 2012 were false and misleading regarding the Company's business and operations. Monster Beverage, through its subsidiaries, develops, markets, sells and distributes alternative beverage category beverages in the United States and internationally.

On August 8, 2012, after the market closed, Monster Beverage announced disappointing financial results, which failed to meet analysts' expectations. Following this news, the price of Monster Beverage stock declined $6.57, or nearly 10%, to close at $61.20 per share on August 9, 2012.
