Glancy Binkow & Goldberg Announces Lead Plaintiff Deadline In The Class Action Lawsuit Against JAKKS Pacific, Inc.00:39 EDT Saturday, August 03, 2013
LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that all purchasers of the securities of JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (“JAKKS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:JAKK) between July 17, 2012 and July 17, 2013 (the “Class Period'), have until September 23, 2013 to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the shareholder lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
A COPY OF THE COMPLAINT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE COURT OR FROM GLANCY BINKOW & GOLDBERG LLP. PLEASE CONTACT US AT (212) 682-5340, TOLL-FREE AT (888) 773-9224, OR AT SHAREHOLDERS@GLANCYLAW.COM TO DISCUSS THIS MATTER OR IF YOU PURCHASED JAKKS SECURITIES PRIOR TO THE CLASS PERIOD. IF YOU INQUIRE BY EMAIL PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS, TELEPHONE NUMBER AND NUMBER OF SHARES PURCHASED.
JAKKS develops, produces and markets toys and consumer products in the United States and internationally. The Company offers traditional toys and electronics as well as novelty and seasonal toys and action figures and accessories primarily based on the Monsuno, Batman, Ultimate Fighting Champion, Total Non-Stop Action wrestling and Pokémon franchises. The Complaint alleges that defendants issued materially false and misleading statements or failed to disclose material adverse facts throughout the Class Period concerning the Company's financial condition and prospects.
On July 17, 2013 JAKKS announced its second quarter 2013 financial results, which included a net loss of $46.9 million for the quarter, and a reduction in its full-year 2013 financial guidance. According to the Company, “charges for license minimum guarantee shortfalls of $14.1 million and inventory impairment of $12.2 million” contributed to the disappointing results, in addition to “poor performance of several of our key properties…along with unusually cool weather that affected seasonal toy sales leading to more aggressive markdowns at retail.” As a result of this news, on July 18, 2013 the price of JAKKS stock fell approximately 39% below the previous day's closing price of $11.48 per share, to a closing price of $7.00 per share on July 18, 2013, on extremely heavy volume.
If you are a member of the Class described above you may move the Court no later than September 23, 2013 to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
