The following is a Businesswire release
Zeldes & Haeggquist, LLP, a shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, has commenced an investigation into possible violations of the federal securities laws by certain officers and directors at Ancestry.com, Inc. (“Ancestry.com” or the “Company”), and others.COMMENT
Ancestry.com, which helped pioneer the market for online family history research, describes itself as “the world’s largest online family history resource, with approximately 1.7 million paying subscribers around the world as of December 31, 2011.” On May 11, 2011, Ancestry.com, whose common stock trades on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol ACOM, completed a $173.2 million secondary stock offering at $42 per share.
Zeldes & Haeggquist’s investigation concerns whether the Registration Statement and Prospectus used to conduct the May 11, 2011 offering contained false and misleading statements, causing the offering to be overpriced. Some of those misstatements have since been corrected, causing the Company’s stock to plummet, and it is now trading at approximately $25 per share.
If you purchased shares of Ancestry.com (NASDAQ: ACOM) in the May 11, 2011 stock offering and would like additional information regarding this investigation, or if you have information regarding the matters under investigation, please contact attorney Amber L. Eck at 619-342-8000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
