Read the Complaint
The complaint charges Mamma.com and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Mamma.com provides information retrieval on the Internet through its metasearch engine www.mamma.com. The Company is focused on being a provider of online marketing solutions to advertisers.
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants caused Mamma.com’s shares to trade at artificially inflated levels through the issuance of false and misleading financial statements. As a result of this inflation, Mamma.com was able to complete a private offering, raising proceeds of $16.6 million on the sale of stock and warrants in June 2004.
On February 16, 2005, the Company issued a press release announcing that “it has been unable to reach an agreement on the terms of the audit engagement with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PWC”) for the year ended December 31, 2004. Accordingly, PWC will not act as the Company’s independent auditor for the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2004.... As a result of these developments, it is unlikely that the Company will file its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2004 and related disclosures within the timeframe prescribed by Canadian securities rules.” The stock dropped below $4 per share on this news.
Murray, Frank & Sailer LLP and its predecessor firms have devoted its practice to shareholder class actions and complex commercial litigation for more than thirty years and have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for shareholders in class actions throughout the United States.
