INVESTOR ALERT: Maryland-Based Law Firm Brower Piven Encourages Shareholders Who Have Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In Under Armour, Inc. To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit

STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of purchasers of Under Armour, Inc. (NYSE: UA, UAA) (“Under Armour” or the “Company”) common stock during the period between April 21, 2016 and January 30, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The action is captioned Brian Breece v. Under Armour, Inc., et. al. (1:17-cv-00388). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until April 10, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

Under Armour is a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Maryland with its principal place of business located in Baltimore, Maryland. Brower Piven is the only firm headquartered in Maryland that has a practice dedicated primarily to representing plaintiffs in shareholder class action litigation.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants who retain counsel like Brower Piven and who claim the largest loss from investment in Under Armour common stock during the Class Period. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that Under Armour’s revenue and profit margins would not be able to withstand the heavy promotions, high inventory levels and ripple effects of numerous department store closures and the bankruptcy of one of its large retailers. Instead, Under Armour promoted itself as a growth company that would continue to develop and market game-changing products.

According to the complaint, the fraud was revealed on January 31, 2017 when Under Armour released weaker-than-expected earnings for the fourth quarter of 2016, and the poor results were in fact tied to market factors, such as department store closings.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Under Armour common stock purchased on or after April 21, 2016 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
