NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 30, 2014) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in EZCORP, Inc. ("EZCORP" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: EZPW) of the October 21, 2014 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against EZCORP and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed in the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons who purchased EZCORP securities between April 30, 2013 through July 18, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.
Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, EZCORP made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company's implementation of certain growth and strategic initiatives was less successful than it had represented; and (ii) certain of EZCORP's business units and investments had not performed as well as represented.
On July 18, 2014, MS Pawn Corporation, the beneficial owner of 100% of EZCORP's outstanding Class B voting common stock, announced the removal of Paul Rothamel as director, President, and Chief Executive Officer, William Love as Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Joseph Beal as director, in order to "strengthen corporate and regulatory governance and to realign corporate strategies."
Following this news, the price of EZCORP stock declined by $1.36, or more than 12 percent, to close at $9.76 on July 21, 2014.
