About the Lawsuit

Western Union and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

These false statements and omissions included, in part, that Western Union: (i) was experiencing difficulties complying with its increased compliance duties required by its Southwest Border Agreement with Arizona, which was to crack down on illegal money laundering along the U.S.-Mexican border; (ii) was spending significantly more than forecast on its efforts to satisfy the Southwest Border Agreement; (iii) had downplayed the impact that changes in its compliance and regulatory environment were having on the Company's operations; and (iv) was under competitive pricing pressure to charge a premium for its core money transfer product.
