Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of RCS Capital Corporation

Jan 12, 2015, 20:00 ET from Harwood Feffer LLP

NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of RCS Capital Corporation ("RCS" or the "Company") (NYSE: RCAP), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On December 29, 2014, a securities class action was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against the Company, case number 1:14-cv-10136.  The complaint alleges that the Company failed to disclose material information in connection with a recent acquisition of Cole Capital from American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. ("ARCP").  According to the complaint, ARCP's financial statements were misleading and fraudulent and there was a serious risk that RCS's revenue stream from its relationship with ARCP was in jeopardy. 

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
