Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Diana Containerships, Inc. (“Diana” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:DCIX) of the December 22, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Diana securities between June 9, 2016 and October 3, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Austin et al v. Diana Containerships Inc. et al, No. 1:17-cv-07329 was filed on December 15, 2017.

The lawsuit alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by engaging in a series of manipulative share issuance/sales transactions with Kalani Investments Limited (“Kalani”) and related entities.  The manipulative scheme was caused by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Symeon P. Palios (“Palios”).   Specifically, Palios caused Diana to sell its common shares and securities convertible into common shares to Kalani at a significant discount to market price and to file registration statements so that Kalani could resell these shares into the market.  When Kalani’s sales of Diana stock caused the price of Diana stock to decline, the Company would reverse split the stock, causing a certain number of outstanding shares to be merged into a single share, and thereby raise the price of Diana stock.  Then Diana would again sell securities to Kalani and the same pattern of transactions would ensue.  At the same time that Diana was engaging in these transactions, the Company failed to disclose the true purpose of the transactions and related stock issuances and reverses – to provide Diana with financing that benefited Palios and his related companies and family members and otherwise funnel money to Company insiders.

As a result of the aforementioned allegations, the Company’s share price has significantly declined.
