The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) defendants' were improperly accounting for the Company's loss reserves; (ii) defendants' were improperly accounting for the Company's good will and tax accounts; (iii) the Company lacked the necessary internal controls over financial reporting; and, (v) as a result the Company's financial statements were deficient and misleading at all relevant times.

On August 7, 2013, after the close of market, the Company disclosed that it is postponing the release of its financial results for the second quarter of 2013. The Company stated that its management concluded that additional time is needed to review matters relating to the estimate of its loss reserves and, primarily due to the integration of the Canopius Bermuda merger, its allocation of goodwill and certain tax accounts.

On this news, Tower securities declined $5.21 per share or nearly 25%, to close at $16.39 per share on August 8, 2013.

If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than October 21, 2013, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class.  Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff."  Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.  You may retain Ryan & Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
