STEVENSON, Md., April 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Wins Finance Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:WINS) (“Wins” or the “Company”) securities during the period between October 29, 2015 and March 29, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until June 5, 2017 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 Wins 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 did not maintain a U.S. headquarters and misrepresented that it did to gain inclusion on the Russell indexes, the Company was not in compliance with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulations, and the Company failed to maintain adequate internal controls.
According to the complaint, following a December 9, 2016 article that the Company is overvalued, a February 2, 2017 article criticizing the Company’s management and their past involvement in securities fraud, and a March 30, 2017 article stating that the SEC is actively investigating Wins Finance for alleged market manipulation and that the Company misrepresented that it maintained a U.S. headquarters, the value of Wins Finance shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Wins securities purchased on or after October 29, 2015 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 .
