WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) between June 1, 2023 and April 16, 2024, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), of the important June 24, 2024 lead plaintiff deadline in the securities class action first filed by the Firm.

SO WHAT: If you purchased Autodesk securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the Autodesk class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24019 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources, or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Autodesk, Inc. lacked adequate internal controls as a result of issues with its free cash flow and non-GAAP operating margin practices; and (2) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

SO WHAT: If you purchased bluebird common stock during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

VXX DEADLINE ALERT: ROSEN, GLOBAL INVESTOR COUNSEL, Encourages Barclays PLC Investors to Secure Counsel Before Important May 20 Deadline in Securities Class Action – VXX

NEW YORK, May 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds acquirers of a short position in Barclays’ iPath Series B S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Exchange Traded Note (“ETN”) under the symbol “VXXB” (hereinafter “VXX”) due to selling VXX ETNs, selling VXX call options, and/or buying VXX put options and who held that position as of the close of market on March 13, 2022, of the important May 20, 2024 lead plaintiff deadline.

The case is against Barclays PLC, Barclays Bank PLC, James E. Staley, Tushar Morzaria, and C.S. Venkatakrishnan (together, “Defendants”).

SO WHAT: If you acquired a short position of VXX ETNs you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the Barclays class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=23523 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 20, 2024. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, Barclays failed to inform investors and the market that it had not implemented any internal controls to monitor the issuances of securities from its shelf registrations, and that it had issued and sold billions of dollars of unregistered securities, including VXX ETNs, in violation of the federal securities registration laws. Barclays illegally sold over $17 billion of unregistered securities over approximately 18 months. Once its misconduct came to light, Barclays had to suddenly and without warning suspend any further issuances and sales of new VXX ETNs. This suspension of sales, which was announced just before the market opened on March 14, 2022, caused the market price of VXX to skyrocket and investors who were short VXX to suffer substantial losses.

According to a JTB statement on Sunday, the four-day event, which ran from May 6th to May 9th, featured the participation of 10 tourism companies and hotels from Jordan, alongside representatives from the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority and Royal Jordanian Airlines.

Al Wakrah Sustainable Waterfront Promenade for Visually Impaired Inaugurated

Doha: The Ministry of Municipality today inaugurated the sustainable waterfront promenade for visually impaired individuals at Al Wakrah Public Beach in the presence of several dignitaries, heads of diplomatic missions accredited to the country, and officials from relevant ministries.

On the occasion, Al Wakrah Municipality Director Eng.

He added that it enhances the quality of life and the implementation of joint initiatives and projects adhering to the highest environmental sustainability standards, promoting eco-friendly practices, along with developing beaches and their service facilities to enable visitors, including those with disabilities, to benefit from them.

In turn, project supervisor Eng. Soha Mahmoud Tufailya explained that the sustainable sea wal
kway for the blind represents the second phase of a project to develop a sustainable private beach that serves people with disabilities of all categories. Its implementation began in 2022 through the establishment of a special sea walkway that connects people with mobility disabilities and the elderly to the closest point to the sea using environmentally friendly materials according to international standards.

The project supervisor added that the project agrees with one of the basic provisions of the Al Wakra Initiative to reduce carbon emissions in the city of Al Wakrah, in addition to its support for the ‘Al Wakra is Disabled Friendly’ initiative, which serves the goals of sustainable development and the Qatar National Vision 2030.

Eng. Soha added that the new waterfront promenade’s information signs were made using recycled materials and display information in the Braille tactile writing system for the visually impaired, the first of its kind in the region and comes in the framework of the Ministry of M
unicipalitys strategy of building sustainable cities and humanizing them.

In April 2022, Al Wakrah Municipality inaugurated a sustainable waterfront promenade for people with disabilities and the elderly, equipped with high-quality sustainability services, which was well received and visited by members of the general public and the targeted categories.
