LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of a class (the “Class”) consisting of persons and entities that acquired Patriot National, Inc. (“Patriot National” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PN) securities between August 15, 2016 and March 3, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
If you are a member of the Class described above, you may move the Court no later than 60 days from the date of this notice, to serve as lead plaintiff. Please contact Lesley Portnoy at 888-773-9224 or 310-201-9150, or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this matter.
According to the Complaint filed in this class action, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the alleged breaches of fiduciary duty by Patriot National CEO Steve Mariano, and alleged related party transactions that served to benefit Mr. Mariano to the detriment of other Company shareholders. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that the Patriot National special committee was beholden to Mariano; (2) that, as such, the special committee was operating for the benefit of Mariano, and not the Company or its shareholders; (3) that the special committee did not independently assess the merits of the Ebix transaction; (4) that the special committee was not exploring strategic alternatives in order to maximize shareholder value; and (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Patriot National’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
If you purchased shares of Patriot National during the Class Period, you may move the Court no later than 60 days from the date of this notice to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
