NNEW YORK, May 22, 2019 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against certain officers and directors of Markel Corporation (NYSE: MKL) on behalf of Markel stockholders. Our investigation concerns whether Markel has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.
On January 1, 2019 a complaint was filed alleging that between July 26, 2017 and December 6, 2018, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) the company’s subsidiaries did not appropriately record loss reserves; (2) as a result, the loss reserves would need to be adjusted and/or restated; (3) these misleading accounting practices would lead to regulatory scrutiny and financial loss to investors; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendant’s positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
