Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Navient Corporation To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Navient Corporation (“Navient” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NAVI) of the April 11, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
Lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of all those who purchased or otherwise acquired Navient securities between April 17, 2014 and February 5, 2016 (the “Class Period”). An initial complaint, Menold v. Navient Corporation, et al., No. 1:16-cv-00075 (“Menold Complaint”) was filed on February 11, 2016 and has been assigned to Judge Gregory M. Sleet.
The Menold Complaint focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that it was providing loan servicing practices which were not in compliance with applicable federal regulations and that this non-compliance may subject Navient to claims for restitution, civil monetary penalties, and corrective actions from federal authorities.
Specifically, the Menold Complaint alleges that on August 1, 2014, Navient disclosed that the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) was investigating the student loan servicer's handling of disclosures and assessment of late fees.
Then, on August 24, 2015, the Company announced that on August 19, 2015, Navient Solutions, Inc. (“NSI”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Navient, received a letter from the CFPB notifying NSI that it is considering taking legal action against the subsidiary related to the previously disclosed CFPB investigation, and might seek restitution, civil monetary penalties, and corrective action against NSI.
After the announcement, Navient’s share price fell from $13.06 on August 24, 2015 to a closing price of $12.04 on August 25, 2015—a $1.02 or a 7.8% drop.
The Menold Complaint also alleges that on Saturday, February 6, 2016, U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton directed public attention to the subject of the CFPB’s investigation of Navient during a speech at New England College in Henniker, New Hampshire.
On this news, Navient’s share price fell from $9.51 on February 5, 2016 to a closing price of $8.94 on the following trading day, February 8, 2016—a $0.57 or a 5.99% drop.
