This action is brought on behalf of investors who purchased AmTrust preferred shares on the open market during the Class Period. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the prices at which Plaintiff and the Class purchased AmTrust preferred stock were artificially inflated as a result of Defendants’ materially false and misleading statements and omissions of material fact concerning the future viability and market for AmTrust’s preferred shares.

Lead Plaintiff filed a Motion for Class Certification on March 15, 2021. On February 3, 2022, the Court issued an Order granting Plaintiff's Motion for Class Certification.

On June 22, 2022, the parties entered into a Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement. The Court granted preliminary approval of the Settlement on July 21.
