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 District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Alliance MMA, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMMA) (“Alliance” or the “Company”) common stock pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) on October 6, 2016. Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until June 16, 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 Alliance’s October 6, 2016 IPO. 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 Act of 1933 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose in connection with the Company’s IPO on or about October 6, 2016 that the condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months and the six months ended June 30, 2016 could not be relied upon because of an error in recognizing as compensation transfers of common stock by an affiliate of the Company to individuals who were, at the time of transfer, or subsequently became, officers, directors or consultants of Alliance MMA.
According to the complaint, following an April 12, 2017 filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission announcing that the previously issued condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 should no longer be relied upon, the value of Alliance MMA shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Alliance’s October 6, 2016 IPO 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.
