The investigation by a law firm focuses on possible claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Swift Transportation Co (NYSE:SWFT) concerning whether a series of statements regarding Swift Transportation' s business, its prospects and its operations were materially false and misleading at the time they were made.
On January 26, 2016, after spending $100 million on share repurchases in November 2015 and January 2016, Swift Transportation's CEO, Jerry Moyes, announced that he wanted Swift Transportation to spend $200 million buying back shares.
