Shareholder Securities Fraud Litigation

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces A Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Performance Sports Group Ltd. (NYSE: PSG)

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of Performance Sports Group Ltd. (“PSG” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PSG) between August 27, 2015 and March 7, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

If you purchased shares of PSG during the Class Period, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Timothy J. MacFall, Esquire or Peter Allocco of Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803 at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail to info@rl-legal.com.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects.  As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

According to the Complaint, on March 8, 2016, before the market opened, the Company issued a press release revising guidance for the year ending May 31, 2016.  According to the release, The Company reduced its fiscal year 2016 Adjusted EPS guidance by approximately $0.55 per diluted share to approximately $0.12 to $0.14 per diluted share as compared to its prior publication of guidance ($0.66 to $0.69 per diluted share), primarily as a result of the following three factors: (i) a write down of the receivable balance from a U.S. national sporting goods retailer that has filed under chapter 11 and the related anticipated loss of sales from this retailer ($0.09 per share); (ii) an anticipated reduction in sales, particularly due to weakness in the baseball/softball market ($0.31 per share); and (iii) additional bad debt reserves primarily for certain U.S. hockey customers and the related anticipated loss of sales from such customers ($0.19 per share).

On this news, shares of PSG plummeted over 66%, closing at $2.91 per share on March 8, 2016, on heavy trading volume.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 17, 2016.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
