Direct Purchaser Plaintiffs (“Plaintiffs”) of Broiler chicken with the following defendants: Peco Foods, Inc. (“Peco”), George’s, Inc. and George’s Farms, Inc. (“George’s”), and Amick Farms, LLC (“Amick”) (collectively “Settling Defendants”).

These proposed Settlements are with these three Settling Defendants only and do not dismiss claims against the other 19 Defendants, the largest of which still remain in the case. Plaintiffs’ lawsuit will continue against the remaining defendants in the case entitled In re Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation, N.D. Ill. Case No. 1:16-cv-08637.

If approved by the Court, the Settlements will resolve Plaintiffs’ claims that the Settling Defendants combined and conspired in restraint of trade, the purpose and effect of which was to suppress competition and to allow the Settling Defendants and other Broiler chicken producers to charge supra-competitive prices for Broilers during the Class Period, in violation of federal law. Settling Defendants deny all allegations of wrongdoing and damages in this lawsuit. If approved, the Settlements will avoid litigation costs and risks to Direct Purchaser Plaintiffs and the Settling Defendants, and will release the Settling Defendants from liability to the class of Direct Purchaser Plaintiffs.

The Current Settlements require the Settling Defendants to pay up to the following amounts to benefit the Direct Purchaser Plaintiff Class: Peco $5.15 million, George’s $4.25 million, and Amick $3.95 million (collectively $13.35 million).
