NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwired - March 25, 2016) - Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF") and KSF partner, the former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have until May 9, 2016 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against comScore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), if they purchased the Company's securities between May 5, 2015 and March 7, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period"). This action is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

About the Lawsuit

comScore and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

On March 7, 2016, comScore disclosed that, on February 19, 2016, the Audit Committee "received a message regarding certain potential accounting matters," which were being investigated. As a result, comScore has been unable to finalize its financial statements pending completion of the review, and therefore has to delay filing its Form 10-K for fiscal year 2015 until after the Audit Committee completes its review. The Company has also suspended its share buyback and has moved back its investor day indefinitely.

On this news, the price of comScore's shares plummeted by over 33%.
