NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising-- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Tribune Media Company ("Tribune" or the "Company") (NYSE: TRCO). Such investors are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/trco.
The investigation concerns whether Tribune and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws.
In May 2017, Tribune and Sinclair Broadcasting Group, Inc. ("Sinclair") announced a prospective merger of the two companies (the "Merger"). On July 16, 2018, Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") Chairman Ajit Pai issued a statement expressing "serious concerns" about the Merger. In particular, Chairman Pai stated that "certain station divestitures that have been proposed to the FCC would allow Sinclair to control those stations in practice, even if not in name, in violation of the law." Chairman Pai's statement signaled that Sinclair was not agreeing to the regulatory requirements necessary to complete the Merger, although Tribune had discussed these station divestitures repeatedly in its public filings since the May 2017 announcement of the Merger. On this news, Tribune's stock price fell $6.44, or 16.7%, to close at $32.12 on July 16, 2018.
