The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company units during the Class Period. The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period the existence of a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) investigation into making false and misleading statements and omissions concerning a series of transactions designed to prevent a takeover of the Company by Carl Icahn and his affiliates, the prospect of legal proceedings associated with the misconduct under investigation, and the Company’s exposure to loss in connection therewith.
According to the complaint, following the publication of an Order Instituting Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings, and Imposing a Cease-and-Desist Order on March 13, 2014 indicating that the SEC investigation had been resolved by, among other things, Lions Gate agreeing to pay $7.5 million in fines and acknowledging that it had violated the federal securities laws, the value of Lions Gate shares declined significantly.Attorneys at Brower Piven have extensive experience in litigating securities and other class action cases and have been advocating for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s.
