KKR is a specialty finance company that invests in multiple asset
classes. The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement and
Prospectus were false and misleading in that they misrepresented and/or
omitted material facts, including understating the risks attributable
to real-estate-related assets held by the Company, the sufficiency of
the Company’s capital and KKR’s mortgage-related exposure. The
complaint also alleges that when, on August 15, 2007, KKR issued a
release which revealed that KKR would be selling $5.1 billion in
mortgage backed securities at a loss, the value of KKR shares fell
substantially below the original offering price.
