DEADLINE ALERT: Brower Piven Alerts Shareholders of Approaching Deadline in Class Action Lawsuit and Encourages Those with Losses in Excess of $100,000 from Investment in Toronto-Dominion Bank to Contact the Firm

STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD) (“Toronto-Dominion” or the “Company”) securities during the period between December 3, 2015, and March 9, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until May 11, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Toronto-Dominion securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that: TD’s wealth asset growth and increased fee-based revenue was spurred by a performance management system that led to its employees breaking the law at their customers’ expense in order to meet sales targets; the Company illicitly increased customer’s lines of credit and overdraft protection amounts without their knowledge; TD illicitly upgraded customers to higher-fee accounts without informing them; and, the Company lied to customers as to the risk of TD’s products.

According to the complaint, following a March 10, 2017 news report on TD revealing that unrealistic sales revenue goals have led employees to break the law at their customers’ expense in order to meet sales targets and keep their jobs, the value of TD shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Toronto-Dominion securities purchased on or after December 3, 2015 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
