The Complaint alleges Defendants failed to disclose to investors:

  • that the Company did not adequately follow industry best practices related to claims handling;
     
  • that, as a result, the Company did not record sufficient claims reserves;
     
  • that the Company lacked adequate internal control over financial reporting; and
     
  • that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On April 29, 2019, the Company disclosed a $2.5 million charge to its claims case reserves and a $2.5 million charge to its incurred but not reported (“IBNR”) reserves, based on a “comprehensive review of [the Company’s] claims operations.” As a result of the charges, the Company “expects to end the full year with a combined ratio excluding catastrophe losses of 88% to 91% and catastrophe losses of 4 to 5 points.”

On this news, the Company’s stock price fell from $13.68 per share on April 29, 2019 to $11.61 per share on April 30, 2019, a decline of $2.07 per share or 15.13%.
