Kirby McInerney LLP Reminds Investors of the Lead Plaintiff Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC

June 12, 2014

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kirby McInerney LLP announced today that a class action lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who acquired Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC (“Och-Ziff” or the “Company”) (NYSE: OZM) securities from February 9, 2012 through April 25, 2014. Pursuant to applicable law, investors have until July 7, 2014 to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the investor lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants failed to disclose that: (a) the Company violated anti-bribery laws by accepting an investment from the Libyan Investment Authority, a sovereign wealth fund; (b) the Company loaned $234 million to help finance two ventures in the Democratic Republic of Congo in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; and (c) beginning in 2011, the Company received subpoenas from the Securities and Exchange Commission and the United States Department of Justice in connection with the transactions mentioned above. Public disclosures in February and April 2014 concerning Justice Department investigations into the foregoing were followed by material declines in the Company’s stock price. On this news, shares in Och-Ziff fell $1.28, or almost 10%, on heavy trading volume, to close at $11.65 on April 28, 2014.
