NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 23, 2017 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Under Armour, Inc. ("Under Armour" or the "Company") (NYSE: UA, UAA) and certain of its officers, and is on behalf of purchasers of Under Armour securities between April 21, 2016 and January 30, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to join this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/uaa.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose 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.
On January 31, 2017, Under Armour revealed its lower-than-anticipated fourth-quarter revenues and announced the resignation of CFO Chip Molloy. Roughly $2.7 billion, or one fifth, of Under Armour's market capitalization disappeared on January 31, 2017 after Under Armour said its quarterly revenue growth dropped more than 20% for the first time in 26 quarters and that it was replacing its CFO after only 13 months. Following this news, Under Armour stock dropped, damaging investors.
