The lawsuit alleges that in connection with AmTrust's merger announced in 2018, AmTrust informed investors that, unlike AmTrust's common shares, which were being acquired in the Buyout, the six series of publicly traded AmTrust preferred stock were not being purchased in the Merger. The lawsuit alleges that AmTrust misleadingly stated the preferred shares would continue to be listed on the NYSE and would remain listed and outstanding following the Merger. The lawsuit further alleges that contrary to these statements, less than two months following the close of the Merger, on January 18, 2019, AmTrust announced it would delist all six series of AmTrust preferred stock from the NYSE. The prices of the preferred stocks dropped by almost 40% the very next trading day, with the preferred stocks losing hundreds of millions of dollars in value. The class action lawsuit seeks to recover on behalf of purchasers of the preferred stock between January 22, 2018 and January 18, 2019.
Investors who purchased AmTrust securities between January 22, 2018 and January 18, 2019 are encouraged to contact the Thornton Law Firm's shareholder rights team at www.tenlaw.com/cases/AmTrust.
