NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in MoneyGram International, Inc. ("MoneyGram" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MGI) of the November 14, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of all those who purchased or otherwise acquired shares pursuant to MoneyGram's secondary public offering completed on or around April 2, 2014 (the "Offering"). The case Iron Workers District Council of New England Pension Fund v. MoneyGram International Inc. et al, No. 1:15-cv-00402 was filed on May 19, 2015, and has been assigned to Judge Leonard P. Stark.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by issuing misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse information in offering documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regarding the possibility of Walmart entering the money transfer business and the consequences it would have on the Company.
Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the false nature of the Offering Documents was revealed approximately two weeks following the closing of the Offering, which is when Walmart, on April 17, 2014, announced that it would launch its own money transfer product in U.S. locations on April 24, 2014.
On this news, MoneyGram's share price declined over the course of several days from a closing price of $17.99 on April 16, 2014 to a closing price of $12.80 on April 21, 2014 —a $5.19 or a 28.85% drop.
