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”) of purchasers of Amaya Inc. (“Amaya” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AYA) securities between June 8, 2015 and March 22, 2016, 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.
On March 23, 2016, news outlets reported that Amaya’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), David Baazov, was charged with insider trading by Quebec securities regulators. Bloomberg Business reported that the charges included “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 . . . .”
On this news, Amaya’s stock fell $3.07 per share, or more than 21%, to close at $11.18 per share on March 23, 2016, on unusually heavy trading volume, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint charges Amaya and certain of its officers with violations of the federal securities laws. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that the Company’s CEO was engaged in an insider trading scheme that involved influencing the market price of the Company’s securities and communicating privileged information to third parties; (2) the Company lacked adequate internal controls; and, (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Amaya’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
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. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Lesley Portnoy, Esquire, of Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles, California 90067, at (310) 201-9150, by e-mail to email@example.com, or visit our website at http://www.glancylaw.com.
