Market Monthly Newsletter – Billions Available In Upcoming Antitrust Rate Manipulation & Derivative Settlements

Billions Available to Eligible Investors


BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AVAILABLE TO ELIGIBLE INVESTORS:

While billions of dollars have already settled in the Foreign Exchange Benchmark Antitrust manipulation case, and have distributed in the Petrobras American Depository Shares (ADS) settlement, there are still several billions expected to settle in cases currently in litigation. We are actively monitoring the Interest Rate Swaps Antitrust Litigation (Spread Manipulation), GSE Bonds Antitrust Litigation, and on the equity side of the horizon, American Realty Capital Properties and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (which include settlement funds of $1.025 billion and $1.210 billion, respectively).

However, these settlements, and the securities and financial products that are eligible to participate, are extremely complex and many claimants will struggle asserting their claims. Those who file successful claims stand to receive significant or even out sized recovery awards. Due to the complexity associated with determining the transactions that are eligible to participate in these multiple settlements, and the large recovery amounts available to eligible claimants, we are requesting that you provide all of your relevant transaction data to Battea for a no-cost analysis.


FOREIGN EXCHANGE CANADIAN LITIGATION SETTLEMENT:

The filing deadline in the CAD $106,747,205 Foreign Exchange Canadian Litigation Settlement is now January 20, 2020. Investors who purchased FX Instruments (OTC) and FX Exchange Traded Instruments between Jan. 1, 2003 and Dec. 31, 2013, should contact Battea – Class Action Services today.


DANSKE BANK SCANDAL:

A lawsuit is being filed in Copenhagen by some of the world’s leading international and Danish law firms, on behalf of investors who suffered investment losses in Danske Bank’s share price after various disclosures related to an estimated EUR €200 billion money transfer scheme involving nonresident Eastern European and Russian customers in the Bank’s Estonian Branch.


Estimated EUR €200 Billion Money Transfer Scheme


Information about critical lapses in Danske Bank’s ‘know your customer’ and anti-money laundering internal enforcement policies, and its failure to act upon both internal and external warnings of noncompliance, caused a more than a 40% decline in Danske’s stock price resulting in losses for investors of more than USD $15 billion.

“Less than thirty percent of investors with provable losses perfect their claims in [securities class action] settlements.”
