The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of shareholders of Prudential Financial, Inc. who purchased shares between February 15, 2019 and August 2, 2019.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Company’s reserve assumptions failed to account for adversely developing mortality experience in the Individual Life business segment; (b) the Company was not over-reserved, but instead, its reported reserves, particularly for the Individual Life business segment, were insufficient to satisfy its future policy benefits liabilities; and (c) the Company had materially understated its liabilities and overstated net income as a result of flawed assumptions in calculating mortality experience.
