SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Class Action Against Vivint Solar, Inc. and Certain Officers -- VSLR

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 10, 2015) - Pomerantz LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against Vivint Solar, Inc. ("Vivint" or the "Company")(NYSE: VSLR) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and docketed under 14-cv-9709, is on behalf of all purchasers of the common stock of Vivint pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement issued in connection with Vivint's October 1, 2014 initial public stock offering ("IPO"). This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Act of 1933. 

If you are a shareholder who purchased Vivint securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement issued in connection with Vivint's October 1, 2014 IPO, you have until January 20, 2015 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll free, x237. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and number of shares purchased.

On or about September 30, 2014, Vivint and the underwriters priced the IPO, and on October 1, 2014 filed the final Prospectus, which forms part of the Registration Statement for the IPO (collectively, the "Registration Statement"), with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The IPO was successful for the Company and the underwriters, with Vivint issuing and selling 20.6 million new shares of Vivint common stock to the public at $16 per share, raising approximately $329.6 million in gross proceeds.

The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement for the IPO was negligently prepared and, as a result, contained untrue statements of material facts or omitted to state other facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading. Under the rules and regulations governing the preparation of the Registration Statement, Vivint was required to disclose at the time of the IPO that ownership trends in the residential solar industry had changed from long-term leasing to financing, that demand for long-term leases had declined, and that growth in the Company's operating expenses in the third quarter of 2014 had significantly outstripped growth in revenue, resulting in much weaker sales trends and significantly larger net losses than the market had been led to expect. The Registration Statement contained no such disclosures.

On this news of Vivint's disappointing third quarter results, shares of Vivint fell $4.58 per share, or approximately 28.62%, from the IPO price to close at $11.42 per share on November 11, 2014.
