NEW YORK, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of securities of AST SpaceMobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASTS) between November 14, 2023 and April 1, 2024, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), of the important June 17, 2024 lead plaintiff deadline.

SO WHAT: If you purchased AST SpaceMobile securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the AST SpaceMobile class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24272 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 17, 2024. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) production of AST SpaceMobile’s five Block 1 BlueBird satellites had been negatively impacted by two suppliers of key subsystems; (2) as a result, AST SpaceMobile had not substantially completed the production of the Block 1 BlueBird satellites; (3) as a result, AST SpaceMobile’s five Block 1 BlueBird satellites were not on track to launch in the first quarter of 2024; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about AST SpaceMobile’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the AST SpaceMobile class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24272 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Deriv Paraguay and TECHO teams unite with a common goal of building houses for those in need.

AREGUA, Paraguay, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Deriv is a leading online trading platform with a 25-year legacy of trust, innovation and service. This legacy extends to a commitment towards social responsibility, with active support for initiatives focused on environmental conservation and uplifting underprivileged communities. To mark Deriv’s 25th anniversary, the company plans to launch a series of CSR initiatives aimed at driving meaningful social betterment.

Deriv partnered with TECHO, a youth organisation in Paraguay, to provide housing solutions to underserved communities in the San Francisco Settlement, just outside of Asunción.

For over six months, Deriv has dedicated its efforts to the construction of 10 new houses for families in dire need. The initial planning phase, now complete, saw Deriv lead on the timeline for construction of the houses as well as identifying communities, families most in need and allocation of resources. The comprehensive plan details logistics, including material procurement, transportation, and implementing stringent safety protocols for seamless project execution.

In addition to housing construction, Deriv is committed to improving the community’s overall quality of life and future prosperity. Initiatives include providing access to technology like laptops, hosting community forums, and offering mentorship and training programs.

Sebastian Perez, the head of Deriv Paraguay’s office, shared insights into the project’s early stages, “Deriv employees were paired with TECHO employees to interview the families; this experience hit home for many as they were met with a new sense of admiration for what the families were going through. With this project, we hope to improve the quality of life of the communities in need.

Ian Insaurralde, a TECHO spokesperson, reflected on the collaboration’s goals, stating, “Our main purpose is to overcome and bring opportunities to families living in poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean. By working with Deriv, we have been able to help assess the community’s needs, develop an action plan, and provide them with the tools to improve their quality of life and transform their communities.

The initiative officially commenced in April, with the Deriv team in Paraguay working alongside TECHO to conduct detailed assessments of approximately 400 households within the neighbourhood. This evaluation focused on economic backgrounds, household sizes, and existing housing conditions, identifying those in urgent need of assistance and formulating a targeted support strategy.

For additional information about this project and other corporate social responsibility initiatives, please visit Deriv Life and the company website.
