LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased B Communications Ltd (“B Communications” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BCOM) securities between November 7, 2013 through June 19, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). B Communications investors are encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy, Esquire, to discuss their legal claims in this matter.
On June 20, 2017, The Times of Israel reported that the Israel Securities Authority (“ISA”) had raided the offices of Bezeq and detained Elovitch. The ISA advised Bezeq that it was investigating “suspicions of violations of the securities law and the penal code relating to transactions connected to” Elovitch. The Israeli publication Globes reported that the ISA is investigating the Bezeq-Yes Merger, as well as payments the unit made to Eurocom under pressure from Elovitch. Following this news, B Communications’ share price fell $1.00, or 4.65%, to close at $20.50 on June 20, 2017, damaging investors.
According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that : (1) Shaul Elovitch, controlling shareholder of Bezeq and B Communications, had engaged in illegal conduct in connection with the Bezeq-YES Merger; (2) discovery of the foregoing conduct would subject B Communications and/or Bezeq to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential criminal sanctions; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, B Communications’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you purchased B Communications shares, you may move the Court no later than August 28, 2017 to request appointment 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.
