NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Markel Corporation (NYSE:MKL) securities between July 26, 2017 and December 6, 2018 (the "Class Period").  Investors have until March 12, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The complaint alleges that throughout the class period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company's business, operations, and prospects.  Specifically, defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the company's subsidiaries did not appropriately record loss reserves; (2) that, as a result, the loss reserves would need to be adjusted and/or restated; (3) that these misleading accounting practices would lead to regulatory scrutiny and financial loss to investors; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendant's positive statements about the company's business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
