American Express to Terminate 86 Employees at Weston-Based Global Billing Services

American Express submitted notice on Aug. 26, 2015 that it would terminate 86 employees at the company's Weston-based Global Billing Services. These layoffs are the last in a round of terminations announced in September 2013 as part of the planned closure of American Express' Weston facility. The 86 employees were already aware of the closure and termination plans. The bulk of the terminated positions are customer care positions. The layoffs will take place on Oct. 30, 2015 and Nov. 13, 2015.

Federal Judge Rejects an Antitrust Settlement Between American Express and Merchants

A federal judge has rejected an antitrust settlement between American Express and merchants who had sued the credit card company over alleged excessive swipe fees. The settlement, which was opposed by the National Retail Federation and many furniture retailers, was thrown out last week by U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis, who ruled one of the attorneys representing the merchants compromised the agreement's fairness, violating court rules to protect confidential information. Garaufis ordered the attorney, Gary Friedman, removed as co-lead counsel for the merchants and called for new written briefs in the case to be filed by Sept.

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP Files Class Action Suit Against American Express Company

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP announced that a class action has been commenced on behalf of an institutional investor in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of American Express Company common stock during the period between October 16, 2014 and February 11, 2015, inclusive. The complaint charges AmEx and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse information regarding AmEx's business and prospects, including the status of its negotiations with U.S. Costco to renew its co-branding agreement, which was set to expire on March 31, 2016, and the financial impact of that agreement on AmEx's business. As a result of these false and misleading statements and/or omissions during the Class Period, AmEx stock traded at artificially inflated prices, reaching a high of nearly $95 per share on December 29, 2014. Then on February 12, 2015, AmEx announced that it had lost the U.S. Costco co-branding relationship and that the financial impact of that loss would be severe. AmEx disclosed that the U.S. Costco co-branding agreement generated 8% of the Company's revenues in 2014, that one in ten U.S. AmEx cards had been issued pursuant to the U.S. Costco co-branding arrangement and that 20% of its outstanding loans had been made pursuant to that agreement. Finally, as a result of the loss of the U.S. Costco co-branding agreement, AmEx stated that the Company's 2015 and 2016 profits would suffer and that the Company would not be able to make any headway on its previous efforts to increase earnings per share until 2017 at the very earliest. In response to this announcement, the price of AmEx common stock fell from a close of $85.40 per share on February 11, 2015, to close at $77.53 per share on February 13, 2015, a decline of nearly $8 per share. Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of AmEx common stock during the Class Period.
