STEVENSON, Md., Aug. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Genworth Financial, Inc. ("Genworth" or the "Company") (NYSE:GNW) securities during the period between December 4, 2013 through July 29, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

If you have suffered a loss from investment in Genworth securities purchased on or after December 4, 2013 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period, as described below, and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html. You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616. No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff no later than October 20, 2014 and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company units during the Class Period.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company's long term care insurance ("LTC") claims were increasing in number and size and that the Company would have to increase its reserves to meet these claims.

According to the complaint, following the Company's July 29, 2014 announcement that its LTC insurance division suffered from higher losses than the prior quarter due to the increased number and size of LTC insurance claims and that the Company was conducting a comprehensive review of the adequacy of its claim reserves, the value of Genworth shares declined significantly.

Attorneys at Brower Piven have extensive experience in litigating securities and other class action cases and have been advocating for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s. If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
