LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the May 19, 2017 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the putative class action filed on behalf of investors who purchased FTD Companies, Inc. (“FTD” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FTD) securities between March 13, 2015 and March 14, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). FTD investors have until May 19, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
On March 14, 2017, FTD disclosed that it had identified “errors” relating to “the assessment of cross-border indirect taxes.” FTD further disclosed that, as a result of the errors, it would revise its previously-reported consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014 and for the quarters in the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2016. On this news, shares of FTD fell over 23% on March 15, 2017, thereby injuring investors.
According to the Complaint filed in this class action, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) FTD’s financial statements contained errors relating to the assessment of cross-border indirect taxes; (ii) in turn, the Company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; (iii) FTD had overstated the benefits of the “Provide Commerce” acquisition; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, FTD’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired FTD shares during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than May 19, 2017 to request appointment as lead plaintiff in this putative class action lawsuit. To be a member of the class action 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 action.
