NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising--Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Swift Transportation Company ("Swift" or the "Company") (NYSE: SWFT).  Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his investor relations analyst Yael Hurwitz at or 212-697-6484.

The investigation concerns whether Swift Transportation Company and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

On January 28, 2016, post-market, The Wall Street Journal released that Jerry Moyes, CEO of Swift, has promised more than $600 million of his assets in Swift, which is a quarter of the company's outstanding shares, as security for loans or loan-like contracts.  Moyes's commitment to use his shares as margin-loan collateral exceeded the limits set by Swift's board and Swift's directors have repeatedly granted Moyes time extensions to meet those limits. 

After spending $100 million on share repurchases in November 2015 and January 2016, Moyes announced on January 26 that he wanted Swift to spend $200 million buying back more shares. This buyback would retire roughly 9% of Swift's stock, back its price and ease the pressure on Moyes's margin loans. 

Following this news, Swift stock has fallen as much as 2%, or $0.33, to just $15.70 per share on January 29, 2016.
