NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of B Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: BCOM) from November 7, 2013 through June 19, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period") of the important August 28, 2017 lead plaintiff deadline in the class action. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for B Communications investors under the federal securities laws.
NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.
The complaint alleges that defendants during the Class Period made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Shaul Elovitch, controlling shareholder of Bezeq and B Communications, had engaged in illegal conduct in connection with the Bezeq-YES Merger; (2) discovery of the foregoing conduct would subject B Communications and/or Bezeq to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential criminal sanctions; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, B Communications' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On June 20, 2017, The Times of Israel reported that the Israel Securities Authority ("ISA") had raided the offices of Bezeq and detained Elovitch. The ISA advised Bezeq that it was investigating "suspicions of violations of the securities law and the penal code relating to transactions connected to" Elovitch. The Israeli publication Globes reported that the ISA is investigating the Bezeq-Yes Merger, as well as payments the unit made to Eurocom under pressure from Elovitch. Following this news, B Communications' share price fell $1.00, or 4.65%, to close at $20.50 on June 20, 2017, damaging investors.
