The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, the Company made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. In particular, the Company failed to disclose: that Rent-A-Center could not effectively implement its new point of sale system ("POS"); that the POS was failing to meet expectations, including several system outrages; that as a result, the Company's Acceptance Now credit system could not be implemented effectively; that the Company could not meet revenue and profitability guidance provided to shareholders; that, as such, the Company would need to review its prior guidance; and that, as a result of the above, the Company's statements about Rent-A-Center's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When this information was revealed to the public, the value of Rent-A-Center stock dropped, causing investors serious harm.
