Long-Term Allstate (ALL) Investors: Johnson Fistel Investigates Allstate; Encourages Investors Owning Since Before November 2014 To Contact The Firm

SAN DIEGO, March 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Fistel, LLP is investigating potential violations of the federal and state securities laws by The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) ("Allstate") and certain of its officers

A Securities Class Action Complaint was filed on behalf of those who purchased securities of Allstate between October 29, 2014, and August 3, 2015 . According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the reason for the sudden spike in its auto claims frequency, which defendants claimed was due to external events beyond the Allstate's control, was actually the result of Allstate's growth in its auto policy business through higher risk drivers. On August 3, 2015, Allstate reported disappointing second-quarter 2015 financial results, including a third consecutive quarter of increased auto claims frequency, a 57% decline in operating income, and operating earnings per share that were $0.34 below analysts' consensus estimate. On that same day, Allstate's CEO stated that the lower quarterly profit was "driven by a deterioration in auto insurance margins" and explained that "[a]uto insurance margins decreased as higher claim frequency and severity more than offset average auto insurance price increases." On February 27, 2018, the courts denied Allstate's motion to dismiss, paving the way for litigation to carry on.
