Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP (http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/proshares/) has commenced the first securities class action on behalf of purchasers of ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (SVXY or the Fund) (NASDAQ:SVXY) pursuant to the May 15, 2017 Registration Statement and/or between May 15, 2017 and February 5, 2018 (the Class Period). This action was filed in the Southern District of New York and is captioned Ford v. ProShares Trust II, et al., No. 19-cv-00886, and assigned to Judge Ronnie Abrams. On February 4, 2019, Judge Abrams ordered, pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that any member of the putative class may move the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff not later than 60 days after publication of notice of the action. As Robbins Geller published notice of the filing of the action on January 29, 2019, motions for appointment as lead plaintiff are due by April 1, 2019.
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased shares of SVXY pursuant to the Registration Statement and/or during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice. An investors ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.
