The complaint alleges that Top Ships' CEO, Evangelos J.

These transactions allowed Top Ships to finance related-party transactions and acquisitions that primarily benefited Pistiolis, his related companies, and other Company insiders.

If you suffered a loss in Top Ships you have until October 23, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
