About the Lawsuit
MoneyGram and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On November 8, 2018, the Federal Trade Commission announced that MoneyGram had agreed to pay a fine of $125 million for failing to fully implement effective anti-fraud measures to comply with prior agreements with the agency. Then, on November 9, 2018, MoneyGram disclosed a 15% decline in money transfer revenue in Q3 2018 compared to Q3 2017 based on “the impact of higher compliance standards and newly implemented corridor specific controls.”
On this news, the price of MoneyGram’s shares plummeted $2.20 per share or over 49%.
The case is Chew v. MoneyGram International, Inc. et al., No. 18-cv-07537.
