Brower Piven Alerts Shareholders of Upcoming Deadline in Class Action Lawsuit and Encourages Those with Losses from Investment in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. to Contact the Firm
The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on behalf of purchasers of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (NYSE: FCAU) ("FCA" or the "Company") securities during the period between October 29, 2014 through July 18, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until September 27, 2016 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in FCA securities during the Class Period. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company was artificially manipulating reported vehicle sales figures by offering dealers financial incentives to report fictional vehicle sales.
According to the complaint, following January 13, 2016 news reports of a lawsuit accusing the Company of paying dealers to improperly inflate vehicle sales numbers and July 18, 2016 news reports announcing that the U.S. Department of Justice and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission were investigating the Company's sales practices, the value of FCA shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in FCA securities purchased on or after October 29, 2014 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
