The stock manipulation class action alleges: (a) CEO Symeon Palios caused Diana to sell common shares and securities convertible into common shares to Kalani Investments Limited and to file registration statements so that Kalani could resell these shares into the market; (b) when Kalani’s flooded the market with those shares it caused the price of Diana shares to decline and the Company would then reverse split the stock, thereby raising the price of Diana shares; (c) this pattern was allegedly repeated; and, (d) Defendants’ “Reverse Split Share Issuance Scheme” effectively wiped out shareholder value.

“We’re focused on the alleged scheme, which is similar to other situations involving Kalani, related party transactions between the Company and entities Palios controls, and the enormous loss shareholders appear to have suffered,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
