The complaint alleges that the Company issued false and misleading statements about the Company's financial condition and prospects. On July 17, 2013, the Company announced its second quarter financial results, which was significantly lower than the previously issued guidance, a guidance that was confirmed as recently as April 2013. The Company's second quarter results included charges for license minimum guarantee shortfalls of $14.1 million and inventory impairment of $12.2 million. The Company stated poor performance of several key properties that contributed to the shortfall. Consequently, the Company revised 2013 guidance from earnings of $0.63-$0.68/share to a loss of $2.56/share, and also suspended its dividend. As result of this, the Company's shares dropped over 39% to its value on July 18, 2013.

Shareholders of JAKKS 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.
