LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, representing investors of EZCORP, Inc. (“EZCORP” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:EZPW), has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of a class (the “Class”) comprising purchasers of the Company’s securities between April 30, 2013 and July 18, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

EZCORP offers customers multiple ways to access instant cash, including pawn loans and consumer loans in the United States, Mexico, Canada and the United Kingdom. The Company offers these products through four primary channels: in-store, online, at the worksite, and through a mobile platform. The Complaint alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the implementation of certain strategic and growth initiatives was less successful than represented; (ii) certain of the Company’s business units and investments were not performing as well as represented; and (iii) as a result of the above, the Company’s statements about its business and operations were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 18, 2014, MS Pawn Corporation, the voting shareholder of EZCORP’s Class B voting common stock, announced the removal from EZCORP of Paul Rothamel as director, President and Chief Executive Officer, William Love as Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Joseph Beal as director. Following this news, shares of EZCORP declined more than 12 percent on July 21, 2014.
