(MKL) Markel Corporation Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Deadline Alert: March 12, 2019

March 12, 2019

NEW YORK, March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Markel Corporation (“Markel” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MKL) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Markel securities during the period between July 26, 2017 and December 6, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: www.bgandg.com/mkl.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Markel’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) consequently, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On December 6, 2018, Markel issued a press release stating “that after having been contacted on November 30, 2018, it is fully cooperating with inquiries by US and Bermuda authorities into loss reserves recorded in late 2017 and early 2018 at Markel CATCo Investment Management Ltd and its subsidiaries.” Following this announcement, Markel’s stock dropped $99.70 per share, or over 8%, to close at $1048.23 on December 7, 2018.
