According to a Press Release dated 5/12/97, the complaint charges Delgratia and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the federal securities laws and alleges that defendants made false and misleading statements about Delgratia's Nevada gold project. Prior to announcing that Delgratia had "struck gold," the Company's stock had traded for as little as $3-1/2. However, after Delgratia's false claims of substantial gold reserves were widely disseminated in February of 1997, Delgratia shares quadrupled, reaching a high of $34-3/4 on March 19, 1997. On March 20, 1997, Delgratia's scheme began to unravel as a Nevada mining official questioned the Company's disclosures relating to its Nevada gold project. Delgratia stock dropped, dropping 50% to $16 per share on trading volume of 3.1 million shares.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
