The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
capital and financial results and concealed the material deterioration
in the Company’s business and the insufficiency of its capital, which
would necessitate additional offerings of securities and dilution of
the ownership interest of MF Global investors. On June 17, 2008, MF
Global issued a press release announcing its intention to sell
approximately $300 million in convertible stock and bonds to repay a
bridge loan due in December and updating its current fiscal first
quarter 2009 earnings estimates. As a result of this news, MF Global’s
stock dropped to close at $7.83 per share on June 18, 2008, a decline
of 43% from June 17, 2008. On June 19, 2008, The Wall Street Journal
published an article regarding the Company’s planned $300 million
offering and its other recent problems, including a probe by the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission. On this news, MF Global’s stock
dropped to $6.86 per share on June 20, 2008, a decline of 55% from the
Class Period high of $14.98 per share in May 2008.
