According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges that the defendants violated ยงยง 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5 during January 22, 2018 between January 18, 2019. More specifically, the plaintiff alleges that beginning on January 22, 2018, the defendants made repeated statements that, unlike AmTrust's common shares, which would be purchased by the company's controlling shareholder and delisted as part of a merger, the six series of publicly traded AmTrust preferred stock would continue to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and would remain listed and outstanding.

Then, on January 18, 2019, less than two months after the close of the merger, AmTrust announced the delisting of all six series of its preferred stock.

Those who purchased shares of AmTrust Financial Services, Inc (Preferred Shares)) have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
