On March 8, 2016, the Company issued a press release disclosing that the Company had revised its fiscal year 2016 Adjusted EPS guidance by approximately $0.55 per share from $0.66 to $0.69 per diluted share to approximately $0.12 to $0.14 per diluted share. The Company attributed the reduced guidance to “(i) a write down of the receivable balance from a U.S. national sporting goods retailer that has filed under chapter 11 and the related anticipated loss of sales from this retailer ($0.09 per share); (ii) an anticipated reduction in sales, particularly due to weakness in the baseball/softball market ($0.31 per share); and (iii) additional bad debt reserves primarily for certain U.S. hockey customers and the related anticipated loss of sales from such customers ($0.19 per share).” On this news, the Company’s shares fell $5.75 per share, or 66.4%, to close at $2.91 on March 8, 2016, thereby injuring investors. And, on March 22, 2016, the Company’s CEO, Kevin Davis, resigned from his position amid alleged disagreements with the Board of Directors and the former Company chairman, W. Graeme Roustan.
If you purchased shares of Performance Sports Group during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than May 17, 2016 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class 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.
