According to the lawsuit, AmTrust: (a) manipulated its loan loss reserves and deferred tax liabilities; (b) underestimated the discount rates for its life settlement contracts; and (c) lacked adequate internal controls. As a result, the complaint alleges that AmTrust's statements during the Class Period were materially false and misleading. When the market learned of this adverse information, the price of AmTrust's securities dropped, damaging investors.
