Kohl's Corporation SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Announces Class Action Against Kohl's Corporation and Its Board of Directors and a Deadline of September 23, 2013 to Seek a Lead Plaintiff Position

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who purchased Kohl's Corporation (“Kohl's” or the "Company") (NYSE:KSS) commons stock during the period between February 26, 2009 and September 13, 2011.

Click here to learn more about the action http://zlk.9nl.com/kohls-kss/, or call: 877-363-5972. There is no cost or obligation to you.

The complaint alleges that the Company misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: a) the Company's reported debt was materially understated; b) the Company's reported equity was materially overstated; c) the Company's leverage ratios were materially understated; d) the financial statements issued by the Company during the class period were materially false and misleading; and e) the Company violated standards of accounting associated with regards to disclosure of leases.

On August 4, 2011, the Company announced that certain errors were discovered in its accounting for its leases. Following this statement, the price of Kohl's common stock declined nearly 8%, to close at $47.67. The company filed a Form 8-K reporting that, as a result of these accounting errors, the financial statements included in 2010 Form 10-K and first quarter 2011 Form 10-Q could no longer be relied upon. On this news, Kohl's stock dropped another 2.5% closing at $43.87 on September 8, 2011.

Shareholders of Kohl's have until September 23, 2013 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
