NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Diana Containerships Inc. ("Diana" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: DCIX). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Diana and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On January 26, 2017, Diana filed a shelf registration statement for the sale of $250 million worth of Company securities. Over the following eight months, Diana sold large volumes of its common shares and securities convertible into common shares to Kalani Investments Limited ("Kalani"), a British Virgin Islands entity, at a significant discount to market price. Kalani subsequently resold these shares into the market. As Diana's share price declined following Kalani's sales, the Company executed a series of reverse stock splits that had the effect of raising its share price. By October 3, 2017, the price of Diana common stock had declined to close at $0.47 per share on an unadjusted basis. At this share price, Diana had a market capitalization of less than one million dollars, despite having raised millions of dollars from investors since January 2017.
