NEW YORK, Feb. 1, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- The Rosen Law Firm today announced its ongoing investigation of civil securities claims against Municipal Mortgage & Equity, LLC ("Maxim" or the "Company") (Pink Sheets:MXIM) (formerly Nasdaq:MXIM), concerning allegations that Maxim issued materially false and misleading statements about its financial condition and financial performance.
On January 17, 2008, the Company announced that it would be restating its financial statements to record between $550 million and $650 million of additional stock-based compensation expense and that its previously issued financial statements could no longer be relied on.
