About the Lawsuit
Atlas and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On March 1, 2018, the Company disclosed that, following “a comprehensive review of its reserves” it was substantially increasing its overall reserves “based on year-end actuarial work coupled with a detailed internal file audit for claims with reserves not established by the Company’s predictive analytics tools….”
On this news, the price of Atlas’ shares plummeted $7.70 per share, over 40%, to close at $11.10 per share on March 2, 2018, on unusually heavy trading volume.
