The Rosen Law Firm Announces Investigation of Securities Claims Against JAKKS Pacific, Inc. – JAKK

11:40 EDT Friday, July 19, 2013

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- The Rosen Law Firm, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential securities claims against JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAKK) resulting from allegations that the Company may have issued materially inaccurate statements about the Company's true financial condition and prospects.

On July 17, 2013, JAKKS announced its second quarter financial results, which significantly missed the Company's previously issued guidance which had been reaffirmed in April 2013. JAKKS' second quarter results included charges for significant license minimum guarantee shortfalls of $14.1 million and inventory impairment of $12.2 million. JAKKS noted that poor performance of several of the Company's key properties contributed to the shortfall. As a result, JAAKS revised 2013 guidance from earnings of $0.63- $0.68/share to a loss of $2.56/share. JAKKS also suspended its dividend. This news caused JAKKS shares to lose over 39% of its value on July 18, 2013.

The Rosen Law Firm is prepring a securities class action lawsuit on behalf of JAKKS investors.
