NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 9, 2017 / Juan Monteverde, founder and managing partner at Monteverde & Associates PC, a boutique securities firm headquartered at the Empire State Building in New York City, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS) ("Dick's Sporting Goods" or the "Company") on behalf of purchasers of the Company's securities between March 7, 2017 and May 15, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period").
The lawsuit is based on whether Dick's Sporting Goods and its executives violated federal securities law by misleading investors by making false and/or misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Dick's Sporting Goods had overstated its adjusted EBITDA amounts. Accordingly, the Company lacked effective internal controls and as a result of the foregoing, Dick's Sporting Goods public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On May 12, 2017, Dick's Sporting Goods issued a Current Report filed on Form 8-K/A with the Securities and Exchange Commission, reporting that a "computation error resulted in a $23.4 million overstatement of Adjusted EBITDA amounts for both the 13 weeks and 52 weeks ended January 28, 2017." As a result of the news, Dick's Sporting Goods' share price fell $2.62 or 5.22%.
Mr. Monteverde would like to personally discuss with you how to potentially recover your monetary losses, if incurred during the Class Period.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 17, 2017. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
