Genworth is a financial services company and provides insurance, including life insurance, long-term care insurance and fixed annuity products, and investment and financial solutions in the United States and internationally. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants issued false and misleading statements or failed to disclose that:

  • The Company was not adequately accounting for its loss reserves related to its Australian mortgage insurance unit, in violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
  • Genworth had far greater exposure to anticipated losses and defaults than it had previously disclosed for its Australian book of business related to insurance written in the Queensland coastal area and insurance written in 2007 and 2008 to small business and self-employed borrowers.
  • The Company failed to disclose known trends and uncertainties concerning an increase in claims and delinquencies associated with its Australian unit in the second half of 2011.

The Complaint further alleges that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company and its outlook, including statements about the stability and outlook of the Company's Australian mortgage insurance unit or the Company's ability to complete an initial public offering of its Australian business unit in the second quarter of 2012.
