NEW YORK, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Skullcandy, Inc. ("Skullcandy" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SKUL) of the April 12, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah on behalf of all those who purchased Skullcandy securities between May 5, 2015 and January 11, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Oswald v. Skullcandy et al, No. 2:16-cv-00246-CW was filed on March 28, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Clark Waddoups.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that its financial, revenue, net income and earning guidelines for the third quarter and full year 2015 as issued on the Company second quarter filings were unattainable and by failing to inform the charge and associated tax rate impacts associated with its largest Chinese distributor. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Defendant Rick Alden and Ptarmagin, an entity controlled by Alden, took advantage of artificially inflated prices to unload a large amount of personal holdings of Skullcandy common stock into the market for a profit.
On January 11, 2016, the Company updated its financial outlook for the fourth quarter 2015, announcing that it had missed its quarterly net sales projections.
After the announcement, Skullcandy's share price fell from $4.55 per share on January 11, 2016 to a closing price of $3.26 on January 12, 2016 —a $1.29 or a 28.6% drop.
