About the Lawsuit
Hain and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On August 15, 2016, Hain announced that it was delaying the release of its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 financial results and does not expect to achieve its previously announced guidance for fiscal year 2016. Hain also disclosed that it "identified concessions that were granted to certain distributors" and was "evaluating whether the revenue associated with those concessions was accounted for in the correct period and is also currently evaluating its internal control over financial reporting."
On this news, the price of Hain's shares plummeted.
