NEW YORK, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Patriot National, Inc. ("Patriot National" or the "Company") (NYSE: PN) of the May 15, 2017 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 Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Patriot National securities between August 15, 2016, and March 3, 2017 (the "Class Period"). The case, Gingello v. Patriot National, Inc. et al, No. 1:17-cv-01866 was filed on March 14, 2017.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the alleged breaches of fiduciary duty by Patriot National CEO, Steve Mariano ("Mariano"), and alleged related party transactions that served to benefit Mariano to the detriment of the Company shareholders.
Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the Company failed to disclose that: (1) the Patriot National special committee was beholden to Mariano; (2) the special committee was operating for the benefit of Mariano, and not the Company or its shareholders; (3) the special committee did not independently assess the merits of the Ebix transaction; (4) the special committee was not exploring strategic alternatives in order to maximize shareholder value; and (5) as a result, the Company's statements about its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. Investors began to learn the truth regarding Patriot National through a series of disclosures, which negatively impacted the price of the Company's stock.
