Brower Piven Announces an Investigation of H&R Block, Inc. for Potential Violations of the Federal Securities Laws

16:10 EDT Wednesday, June 12, 2013

STEVENSON, Md. (Business Wire) -- Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation of potential securities law violations by H&R Block, Inc. (“H&R Block” or the “Company”) (NYSE: HRB).

The investigation of H&R Block is related to statements issued by the Company relating to its valuations of goodwill and of its RSM McGladrey Business Services, Inc. (“RSM”) division between June 23, 2011 and September 1, 2011. On September 1, 2011, H&R Block unexpectedly announced that it recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $85 million in connection with the sale of RSM to McGladrey & Pullen, LLP. The price of H&R Block's stock fell dramatically on the news.

If you purchased H&R Block common stock between June 23, 2011 and September 1, 2011, the period during which H&R Block common stock may have been overvalued due to possibly misleading statements by the Company, and would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted by Brower Piven, you may email or call Brower Piven, who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
