STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 Amaya Inc. (Nasdaq: AYA) (“Amaya” or the “Company”) common stock during the period between June 8, 2015 and March 22, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors with losses in excess of $100,000 who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until May 24, 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 the Company’s common stock 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’s CEO was engaged in an insider trading scheme that involved influencing the market price of the Amaya’s securities and communicating privileged information to third parties and that Amaya lacked adequate internal controls.
According to the complaint, following the March 23, 2016 news reports that Company CEO David Baazov was charged with insider trading by Quebec securities regulators, including allegations of aiding with trades while in possession of privileged information, influencing or attempting to influence the market price of securities of Amaya, and communicating privileged information, the value of Amaya shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss from investment in Amaya common stock purchased on or after June 8, 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 http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
