J&W Announces Investigations of Ocwen and Hain Celestial; Investors Encouraged to Contact Firm

SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP (J&W) is investigating potential claims against Ocwen Financial Corporation and The Hain Celestial Group, Inc., as detailed below:

Ocwen Financial Corporation

Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of Ocwen Financial Corporation (OCN) between May 11, 2015 and April 19, 2017, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Ocwen investors under the federal securities laws.

The complaint alleges that defendants during the Class Period made false and misleading statements and Ocwen violated federal securities laws by making materially false and misleading public statements about its business, operations and compliance policies. On April 19, 2017, the last day of the Class Period, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("CFPB"), which is charged with enforcing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that protects consumers from unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices, and other federal consumer financial laws, issued a press release (the "CFPB press release") announcing that it had filed a lawsuit against Ocwen Financial, and its subsidiaries for "failing borrowers at every stage of the mortgage servicing process." Following this news announcement, the stock price of Ocwen plummeted, causing investors harm.

If you wish to serve as a lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 20, 2017. 

If you have held Ocwen shares continuously held shares before May 11, 2015, you may have the standing to hold Ocwen harmless from the damage the officers and directors caused by making them personally responsible. You may also be able to assist in reforming the Company's corporate governance to prevent future wrongdoing.

If you are an Ocwen shareholder and are interested in learning more about your legal rights and remedies, please contact Jim Baker (jimb@johnsonandweaver.com) at 619-814-4471. If you email, please include your phone number.

The Hain Celestial Group, Inc.

Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP today announced that it is investigating whether certain officers or directors of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (HAIN) violated federal laws.

In 2016 a Class Action Complaint was filed on behalf of purchasers Hain.  The complaint alleged that throughout the Class Period, Hain lacked adequate controls over financial reporting.

Following this Class Action, on February 10, 2017, Hain disclosed the SEC is investigating its accounting practices. Hain also filed a Form NT 10-Q with the SEC announcing that it is "unable to file, without unreasonable effort or expense, its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 (the "Form 10-Q") by February 9, 2017, the original due date for such filing."

If you are a long-term shareholder of Hain shares and continuously held shares before November 5, 2015, you may have the standing to hold Hain harmless from the damage the officers and directors caused by making them personally responsible. You may also be able to assist in reforming the Company's corporate governance to prevent future wrongdoing.

If you are a long-term Hain shareholder and are interested in learning more about your legal rights and remedies, please contact Jim Baker (jimb@johnsonandweaver.com) at 619-814-4471. If you email, please include your phone number.
