NEW YORK, July 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased Centrais Elétricas Brasileiras S.A. – Eletrobras (“Eletrobras” or the “Company”) (NYSE:EBR) securities between February 10, 2014 through April 29, 2015, inclusive (“Class Period”), alleging violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
