According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Ascena’s acquisition of ANN, Inc. developed into a disaster for the Company based on ANN’s operations to be in far worse condition than was generally believed to be the case. The Company improperly delayed the recognition of an impairment charge related to ANN’s goodwill to mask the true extent of this problem. Based on this delay, the Company’s income and assets were overstated and its financial results were not in conformity with GAAP. Ascena overvalued many of the brands in the ANN acquisition as they were in serious decline. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Ascena, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.
