INVESTOR ALERT: Investigation of Barclays PLC Announced by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of Barclays PLC (“Barclays” or the “Company”) (NYSE:BCS) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. The investigation is focused on certain statements issued by Barclays concerning the Company’s business and operations. Investors who have losses of $1 million or more are encouraged to contact the firm for more information.

Please contact us at 310-201-9150, or at shareholders@glancylaw.com to discuss this matter. If you inquire by email please include your mailing address, telephone number and number of shares purchased.

Barclays provides various financial products and services worldwide. The investigation is related to allegations that the Company misrepresented or failed to disclose material information to the investing public concerning how, and for whose benefit, Barclays operates a private securities trading venue known as a “dark pool.” According to allegations in a complaint filed June 25, 2014, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York by New York Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman, Barclays embarked on a business strategy to dramatically increase the market share of its dark pool by attracting high-frequency traders to the pool and by giving those traders advantages over others trading in the pool – contrary to the Company’s representations that it implemented special safeguards to protect clients from “aggressive” or “predatory” high-frequency traders.

If you purchased Barclays stock and suffered losses of $1 million or more, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Lesley Portnoy, Esquire, of Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles, California 90067, at 646-539-8980, by e-mail to shareholders@glancylaw.com, or visit our website at http://www.glancylaw.com.
