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.
In August 2013, Catalyst Futures Fund was converted from a hedge fund to a mutual fund. According to the lawsuit, the Prospectuses and Registration Statements issued in connection with the offerings of Catalyst Futures Fund shares were false and/or misleading and/or failed to disclose that the Catalyst Futures Fund continued to invest as if it were a hedge fund, taking massive directional bets against U.S. stock market indices through complex derivative instruments, thereby exposing investors to the heightened risk of loss of capital.
According to the complaint, it was eventually revealed that the Catalyst Futures Fund made a directional bet that the general equity market would not rise significantly in value in the form of massive option contracts that effectively "shorted" the S&P 500. As these undisclosed risks materialized, Catalyst Futures Fund's investors suffered hundreds of millions of dollars in losses. Between February 2, 2017 and March 15, 2017, the NAV of the Catalyst Futures Fund's Class A shares, Class C shares and Class I shares declined approximately 21%, or $2.22 per share, $2.16 per share and $2.23 per share, respectively.
A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 27, 2017. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
