BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire -11/23/11)- Saxena White P.A. announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on behalf of investors who purchased Imperial Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IFT - News) ("Imperial" or the "Company") common stock pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's Registration and Prospectus issued in connection with the Company's February 7, 2011 initial public offering (The "IPO" or the "Offering").
On September 27, 2011, after the close of trading, Imperial issued a press release announcing that it had been served with a search warrant issued by a Magistrate Judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The Company disclosed that "it and certain of its employees, including its chairman and chief executive officer, and its president and chief operating officer, are under investigation in the District of New Hampshire with respect to its life finance business." On this news, shares of the Company's stock declined $4.11 per share, or 65.24%, to close at $2.19 per share on September 28, 2011, on unusually heavy trading volume. This closing price represented a cumulative loss of $8.56, or 79.63%, of the value of the Company's shares at the IPO price of $10.75 per share, just months earlier.
