SAN DIEGO, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP is investigating potential claims against El Pollo Loco Holdings, Inc., TransDigm Group Incorporated, and Zebra Technologies Corporation as detailed below:

El Pollo Loco Holdings, Inc.
Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP today announced that it is investigating whether certain officers or directors of El Pollo Loco Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: LOCO) ("El Pollo ") violated federal or state laws.

A Securities Class Action Complaint was filed on behalf of those who purchased securities of El Pollo between May 15, 2015 and August 13, 2015. The complaint alleges the company concealed the negative impact that certain menu changes and increases in labor costs in California were having on sales growth in a series of false and misleading statements regarding El Pollo sales and its ability to meet projections. As a result of these alleged false and misleading statements and/or omissions, El Pollo securities allegedly traded at artificially inflated prices during the class period, with the company's stock price reaching a high of $25.37 per share; allowing the company's controlling shareholders, CEO and others to sell tens of millions of dollars' worth of their personally held El Pollo shares at artificially inflated prices.  Earlier this month, the federal judge presiding over the class action found "that Plaintiffs have sufficiently plead facts demonstrating the existence of false and misleading statements" and denied the defendants' request that case be dismissed.  The judge's finding is a significant development.

If you are a long-term shareholder of El Pollo shares and continuously held shares before May 15, 2015, you may have standing to hold El Pollo harmless from the damage the officers and directors may have caused by making them personally responsible. You may also be able to assist in reforming the Company's corporate governance to prevent future wrongdoing.

Zebra also failed to disclose the impact of material weaknesses identified in its internal controls and procedures over financial reporting and disclosure, which caused the misstatements and rendered the Company's financial guidance for 2015 and the first and second quarters of 2016 materially false and misleading.
