About the Lawsuit
Allstate and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On August 3, 2015, Allstate announced disappointing second quarter 2015 financial results, reporting a third consecutive quarter of increased auto claims frequency, a 57% decline in operating income, and operating earnings per share that were $0.34 below analysts' consensus estimate. Allstate’s CEO stated that the lower quarterly profit was “driven by a deterioration in auto insurance margins” and “[a]uto insurance margins decreased as higher claim frequency and severity more than offset average auto insurance price increases.”
On this news, the price of Allstate’s stock plummeted.
