STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of WageWorks, Inc. (NYSE: WAGE) (“WageWorks” or the “Company”) securities during the period between May 6, 2016 through March 1, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until May 8, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in WageWorks securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that there were material weaknesses in the Company's systems of internal controls, WageWorks failed to adequately manage and assess risk relating to certain complex transactions, including certain government contracts, and WageWorks improperly recognized revenue.
According to the complaint, following a March 1, 2018 announcement that the Company was delaying its Annual Report on Form 10K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and its financial results and associated conference call for the fourth quarter of 2017, the value of WageWorks shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in WageWorks securities purchased on or after May 6, 2016 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.

If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
