According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Dick’s Sporting Goods had overstated its adjusted EBITDA amounts; (2) accordingly, Dick’s Sporting Goods lacked effective internal controls; and (3) as a result, Dick’s Sporting Goods public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On May 12, 2017, Dick’s Sporting Goods revealed that a “computation error resulted in a $23.4 million overstatement of Adjusted EBITDA amounts for both the 13 weeks and 52 weeks ended January 28, 2017.” On this news, shares of Dick’s Sporting Goods fell $2.62 per share or over 5% over two trading days to close at $47.57 per share on May 15, 2017, damaging investors. On May 16, 2017, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced that sales at its existing stores in the first quarter of 2016 had fallen short of forecasts and advised investors that Dick’s Sporting Goods planned to scale back new store openings in 2018 and 2019.
