Shareholder Securities Fraud Litigation

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces A Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: HAIN)

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (“Hain” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: HAIN) between November 5, 2015 and August 15, 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 Hain during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold Hain, 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

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.  Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public that: (1) the Company lacked adequate controls over financial reporting; (2) consequently, the Company failed to correctly account for revenue associated with concessions granted to certain distributors in the United States; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, Hain’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.  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 August 15, 2016, after the market closed, Hain announced that it would delay the release of its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 financial results.  The Company announced that during the fourth quarter, it had identified concessions that were granted to certain distributors in the United States and it was evaluating whether the revenue associated with those concessions was accounted for properly.  Hain also announced that it was evaluating its internal control over financial reporting.

On this news, shares of Hain dropped over 26%, closing at $39.35 per share on August 16, 2016, on heavy trading volume.
