SHAREHOLDER ALERT Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Shareholders of Avista Corporation of a Class Action Lawsuit and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of December 13, 2017
Levi & Korsinsky, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Washington on behalf of current stockholders of Avista Corporation (“Avista” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AVA) in connection with the planned acquisition of the company by Hydro One Limited.
On July 19, 2017, Avista announced it had entered into an agreement pursuant to which Hydro One Limited, through its subsidiaries Olympus Holding Corp. and Olympus Corp., would acquire all outstanding shares of Avista for $53.00 per share. The lawsuit is captioned Jenβ v. Avista Corporation, et al. (Case No. 2:17-cv-00333), and alleges that defendants solicit stockholders’ votes in support of the sale of the Company through a proxy statement that omits material facts necessary to make the statements therein not false or misleading. Stockholders require this material information to cast a properly informed vote of their shares.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than December 13, 2017.

Levi, at Levi & Korsinsky, LLP, (212) 363-7500, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
