Kirby McInerney LLP Announces That It Has Filed a Class Action Lawsuit Against Genworth Financial, Inc.

August 19, 2014

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kirby McInerney LLP announced today that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who acquired Genworth Financial, Inc. (“Genworth” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GNW) securities during the period from December 4, 2013 through July 29, 2014 (the “class period”). Pursuant to applicable law, investors have until November 17, 2014 to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the investor lawsuit.

The lawsuit charges that throughout the class period, the Company failed to disclose: (1) that the Company’s long term care insurance (“LTC”) claims were increasing in number and size; (2) that the Company would have to increase its reserves to meet these claims; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On July 29, 2014, after the market close, the Company issued a press release announcing that its LTC insurance division suffered from higher losses than the prior quarter due to the increased number and size of LTC insurance claims. The Company announced that it was conducting a comprehensive review of the adequacy of its claim reserves. On this news, shares of Genworth declined $2.28 per share, over 14%, to close on July 30, 2014, at $13.98 per share, on unusually heavy volume.
