The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Aaron’s violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading public statements, and/or failing to disclose material information, to investors. The Company misled investors regarding its subsidiary, Progressive Finance Holdings, LLC (“Progressive”), concealing from investors that it was experiencing software issues that impacted Progressive’s underwriting algorithm. In reality, Progressive lost critical data in February 2015, which impacted the Company’s ability to make loans and collect payments. Following this news, Aaron’s stock price fell materially, which caused investors harm.
