NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.

According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Citizens’ brokers and pitchbooks falsely claimed that most of the funds from its insurance policies were directly invested in U.S. Treasury Bond; (2) funds from Citizens’ insurance policies were funneled into continuous open market purchases that inflated Citizens’ stock price; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about Citizens’ business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On March 8, 2017, Seeking Alpha published an article asserting that Citizens sells insurance policies to foreign retail investors and retirees with promises that they are backed by U.S. Treasury bonds even though such policies actually funnel millions of dollars into open market purchases of Citizens’ shares and inflate the value of such shares. On this news shares of Citizens fell $0.45 per share or over 5% over the next two trading days to close at $8.00 per share on March 9, 2017, damaging investors.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 15, 2017.
