The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Dick’s made materially false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose materially adverse facts to investors. On May 12, 2017, the Company issued a Current Report filed on Form 8-K/A with the U.S. Securities & 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.” Upon release of this news, Dick’s share price fell $2.62, or 5.22%, over the following two trading days. On May 16, 2017, Dick’s announced that sales at its existing stores in the first quarter of 2016 fell short of forecasts and advised investors that the Company planned to scale back new store openings in 2018 and 2019. Following this news, Dick’s stock price dropped materially, which caused investors harm.
