Riley Financial, Inc. (“B. Riley Financial” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: RILY) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired B. Riley Financial securities from May 10, 2023 through November 9, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired B. Riley Financial securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting atara@twerskylawgroup.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is March 25, 2024.

The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased B. Riley Financial securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.



In May 2023, B. Riley assisted Brian Kahn in a $2.8 billion management buyout of Franchise Group, Inc. The deal closed on August 21, 2023. On November 2, 2023, Kahn was implicated in a $294 million investor fraud conspiracy. The DOJ named him as an unnamed coconspirator, leading to a stock drop of 22%. The Friendly Bear’s tweet raised doubts about B. Riley’s knowledge, causing another 15% stock decrease on November 10, 2023. Further revelations about complex financial transactions led to a 14% decline on November 13, 2023. The class action alleges that Defendants failed to disclose Kahn’s involvement, the risk of regulatory scrutiny, and made misleading statements about the Company’s prospects.
