The Republic of Ecuador is the official name of the country in South America. According to the Complaint, Plaintiffs bring this action on behalf of a class of bondholders against Ecuador (the Defendant) for violations of the federal securities laws arising from a tender offer for $17.4 billion of the Republic’s outstanding bonds. The Complaint alleges that Defendant made materially false and misleading statements in a press release on July 27, 2020 and in the underlying transaction documents.
