The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose the following: a) Urban Outfitters' comparable sales growth had significantly declined, particularly in its all-important Urban Outfitters group; (b) as a result of declining sales, Urban Outfitters was forced to offer an additional 30% off all clearance items during Labor Day weekend 2013, something it had not been forced to do during the prior year Labor Day weekend; and (c) as a result of the foregoing, the Company was not on track to achieve the financial results defendants had led the market to expect during the Class Period.

On September 9, 2013, the Company disclosed lower than expected second quarter 2014 financial results and issued disappointing third quarter guidance. Upon this news, shares of Urban Outfitters fell from a close of $42.71 per share to a close of $38.35 per share on September 10, 2013.

If you suffered a loss in Urban Outfitters you have until December 10, 2013 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
