Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCAU) Securities Class Action:
According to the complaint, Defendants throughout the Class Period misrepresented and actively concealed that: (1) Fiat and its senior management, including the late CEO Sergio Marchionne, were engaged in an illicit bribery scheme to win concessions from labor union IAW; and (2) due to the scheme, Defendants' statements about Fiat's labor costs, receivables, business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading.
The complaint alleges that the market learned the truth on November 20, 2019, when General Motors filed an unprecedented racketeering lawsuit against Fiat, accusing Fiat of engaging in a decade-long labor corruption conspiracy with IAW designed to force GM's merger with Fiat.
On this news, Fiat's shares fell sharply, wiping out nearly $1 billion in market capitalization in a single trading day.
If you invested in Fiat between Feb. 26, 2016 and Nov. 20, 2019 (the "Class Period") and suffered significant losses, you may qualify to be a lead plaintiff – one who selects and oversees the attorneys prosecuting the case. Contact Hagens Berman immediately for more information about the case and being a lead plaintiff.
"We're focused on investors' losses and holding Fiat accountable for concealing this massive labor corruption scheme," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
