Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired shares of Teekay Corporation (NYSE: TK) (“Teekay” or “the Company”) between June 30, 2015 and December 17, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Teekay investors may receive additional information about the case by clicking the link "Join this Class Action" above.
According to the complaint, Teekay was founded in 1973 as a regional shipping company and tanker operator. Today, Teekay has a diversified fleet with over $12 billion in assets and some of the world’s largest fleets in the Company’s core markets.
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company’s repeated assurances that it would maintain a quarterly dividend of at least $0.55 per share were baseless; (2) the Company knew, based on then-present facts, that it could not support future dividend payments in excess of $0.55 per share; (3) the cash flows from the Company’s master limited partnerships (“MLPs”) – Teekay LNG Partners LP (“TGP”) and Teekay Offshore Partners LP (“TOO”) – could not possibly sustain such high dividends; and (4) Teekay misled the market about the strength of its business and financial condition.
On December 16, 2015, Teekay issued a press release in which it announced that the Company’s “Board of Directors has approved a plan to reduce the Company’s quarterly dividend to $0.055 per share, down from $0.55 per share in the third quarter of 2015, commencing with the fourth quarter of 2015 dividend payable in February 2016.”
Following this news, Teekay’s share price declined 58%.
If you are a member of the class described above, you may no later than May 2, 2016 move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff of the class, if you so choose.
A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
