About the Lawsuit

Tower Group and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

On August 7, 2013, Tower Group announced that it was postponing the release of its second quarter 2013 financial results, stating that additional time was needed to review matters relating to its estimated loss reserves and allocation of goodwill and certain tax accounts. Then, on August 8, 2013, the Company disclosed that it may record an adverse reserve development of $60-$110 million pre-tax and that it had hired an independent actuarial firm to review selected areas of its loss reserves.

On this news, Tower Group shares fell drastically by over 24%.
