INVESTOR ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Shareholders of The Allstate Corporation of Commencement of a Class Action Lawsuit and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of January 9, 2017 -- ALL

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 23, 2016) - The following statement is being issued by Levi & Korsinsky, LLP:

To: All persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of The Allstate Corporation ("Allstate") (NYSE: ALL) between October 30, 2014 and August 3, 2015.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the reason for the Company's sudden spike in its auto claims frequency -- which defendants claimed was due to external events beyond the Company's control, including the weather and increased miles driven -- was actually the result of Allstate's growth in its auto policy business through higher risk drivers. As a result of defendants' false statements and/or omissions, Allstate stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, reaching a high of $72.58 per share, and certain of the Company's insiders, including its CEO, were able to sell their Allstate shares at artificially inflated prices.

If you suffered a loss in Allstate you have until January 9, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
