The distribution of the Net Settlement Fund took place on December 15, 2021.
The parties in Howard, et al. v. Liquidity Services, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:14-cv-1183-BAH (D.D.C.) (the “LSI Securities Litigation” or the “Action”), pending in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, have reached a proposed settlement of the Action that, if approved, will resolve all claims in the Action.
The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. The Settlement will create a $17,000,000 cash fund, which will earn interest, to be distributed after the deduction of Court-approved fees and expenses, to eligible Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form and are found to be entitled to a distribution from the Net Settlement Fund.
Please be advised, if you are a Class Member, your legal rights will be affected by this Settlement whether you act or do not act. The Court has decided that everyone who fits the following description is a Class Member and subject to the Settlement, unless they are an excluded person or previously took steps to exclude themselves:
All persons and entities that purchased or acquired the publicly traded common stock of Liquidity Services, Inc. (“LSI”) during the period from February 1, 2012, through May 7, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period"), and were damaged thereby.
Check your investment records or contact your broker to see if you purchased or acquired the publicly traded common stock of LSI during the Class Period.
