The complaint alleges that while the Company concealed from investors that its two founders intended to step down as CEO and Chairman, it also raised its fiscal 2014 sales and earnings guidance twice. The complaint further alleges that during this time Five Below's founders and Chief Financial Officer sold almost $30 million worth of their personally held shares at fraud-inflated prices.

On December 4, 2014, Five Below disclosed that its sales growth had slowed and that it was reducing its sales and profit forecasts; it was also disclosed that the Company's founders were resigning as CEO and Chairman. Upon this news, shares of Five Below fell more than 12 percent.

If you suffered a loss in Five Below you have until March 10, 2015 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
