STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Sito Mobile, Ltd. (Nasdaq: SITO) (“Sito” or the “Company”) common stock during the period between February 9, 2016, and January 2, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until April 18, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Sito common stock during the Class Period. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that Sito’s growth of bookings would not propel the Company’s fourth fiscal quarter 2016 media placement revenues and revenue growth to the level represented, Sito was aware that the election would impact the Company’s fourth fiscal quarter 2016 revenue, clients’ campaign spending and media placement revenues in the fourth quarter 2016 was highly dependent on the elections, and the Company’s growth in media placement revenues would not occur in the fourth fiscal quarter 2016.
According to the complaint, following a January 3, 2017 press release announcing that the fourth quarter was negatively affected by restrained advertising spending during a period of heightened and elongated media focus on the election, the value of Sito shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Sito common stock purchased on or after February 9, 2016 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
