Jan 07, 2016, 15:51 ET from Block & Leviton LLP

BOSTON, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- United Development Funding IV ("UDF" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: UDF) and its executives Hollis M. Greenlaw and Cara D. Obert were named as defendants in a lawsuit filed today by Block & Leviton LLP alleging that they violated the Federal Securities Laws.

The suit, filed in Federal Court in the Northern District of Texas, alleges that defendants made false or misleading statements about UDF IV's methods of operation, including the fact that UDF IV provided liquidity to other UDF companies and funds. UDF also revealed, on December 10, 2015 that it had been "cooperating since April 2014 with a nonpublic fact-finding investigation being conducted by the Staff of the Securities Exchange Commission".  UDF had never previously revealed this SEC investigation.  When these facts came to light on December 10 and 11, 2015, shares in UDF plummeted by more than 50%. 

If you purchased or otherwise acquired UDF securities between June 4, 2014 and December 10, 2015 you may be a member of the alleged class. You may move the Court to be a lead plaintiff or you need not take any action at this time. If you wish to be a lead plaintiff, you must file a motion by February 19, 2016.
