What is the class action claim?
The Seventy Seven Energy Inc. Retirement & Savings Plan, beginning in 2014, took on and kept almost $100 million in Chesapeake Energy Corporation stock. Rather than diversify this large concentration of non-Seventy Seven Energy, Inc. stock into the S&P 500, Seventy Seven Energy, Inc. chose to keep these Plan assets in Chesapeake stock. Shares of Chesapeake Energy have lost virtually all value while the S&P 500 has risen to record levels. The fiduciaries responsible for managing the Seventy Seven Energy Inc. Retirement & Savings Plan should have taken steps to diversify its concentration of Chesapeake Energy stock into the S&P 500.
Who can join this class action?
Any current or former employees of Seventy Seven Energy, Inc. who also participated in the Seventy Seven Energy Inc. Retirement & Savings Plan anytime during the past 6 years.
