Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Loma Negra Compania Industrial Argentina Sociedad Anonima ("Loma" or the "Company") (NYSE: LOMA) securities pursuant or traceable to the Company's November 2017 initial public offering. Loma investors have untilĀ February 4, 2019 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Loma investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that the Company misled investors by: (1) downplaying and misrepresenting Loma Negra's exposure to a massive, ongoing corruption scandal engulfing its majority owner, InterCement Participacoes S.A.; (2) misrepresenting a purported increased demand for Loma Negra's cement and other products as a result of economic growth and government funding for public works projects in Argentina, as well as the purported benefits to Loma Negra from that increased demand; (3) misrepresenting events and trends in the Argentinian economy, as well as Loma Negra's exposure thereto; and (4) including references to known risks that "if" occurring "might" or "could" affect Loma Negra, despite the fact that these "risks" had already materialized at the time of the IPO.

If you purchased shares of Loma, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
