STEVENSON, Md., Aug. 05, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of American Express Company (“AmEx” or the “Company”) (NYSE:AXP) common stock during the period between October 16, 2014 and February 11, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until September 28, 2015 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you have suffered a loss from investment in AmEx common stock purchased on or after October 16, 2014 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period, as described below, 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. You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at email@example.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616. No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the 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 Company common stock during the Class Period. Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period accurate information regarding the U.S. Costco co-branding agreement.
According to the complaint, following the Company’s February 12, 2015 announcement that it had lost the U.S. Costco co-branding relationship, and, as a result, its 2015 and 2016 profits would suffer and the Company would not be able to make any headway on its previous efforts to increase EPS by 12-15% during 2015 and 2016, the value of AmEx’s shares declined.
Attorneys at Brower Piven have extensive experience in litigating securities and other class action cases and have been advocating for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s. If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
