Law Firm Kirby McInerney & Squire Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Navigant Consulting, Inc.
The following is an announcement by the law firm of Kirby McInerney & Squire, LLP:
Please take notice that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of all purchasers of Navigant Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: NCI) common stock between May 6, 1999 and November 22, 1999 (the "Class Period"). The action asserts a claim against Navigant and certain of its officers for violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by reason of material misrepresentations and omissions.
On November 22, 1999, the company announced: (i)that several senior officers and directors, including the CEO and Chairman, had been dismissed or had resigned; (ii) that these and other officers had managed during the third quarter of 1999 to obtain loans from the company totaling $17 million; and (iii) that the company*s method for accounting for business combinations was being examined by its auditor and might require significant restatement. As a result, Navigant*s stock price declined over 70% from its class period high.
The lawsuit seeks to recover losses suffered by investors who purchased Navigant common stock during the class period, excluding the defendants and their affiliates. Plaintiff is represented by the firm of Kirby McInerney & Squire, LLP, which specializes in complex litigation, including securities class actions.
