WAYNE, Pa., April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan & Maniskas, LLP that a class action lawsuit has been filed in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased Brixmor Property Group, Inc. ("Brixmor" or the "Company") (NYSE: BRX) publicly traded securities during the period between October 27, 2014 and February 5, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").
Brixmor shareholders may, no later than May 31, 2016, move the Court for appointment as a lead plaintiff of the Class. If you purchased shares of Brixmor and would like to learn more about these claims or if you wish to discuss these matters and have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights, contact Richard A. Maniskas, Esquire toll-free at (877) 316-3218 or to sign up online, visit: www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/brx.
Brixmor is a publicly-traded real estate investment trust ("REIT") that operates a wholly-owned portfolio of grocery-anchored shopping centers, with 518 properties from California to Maine. The Company is incorporated in Maryland and maintains its principal executive offices in New York, NY.
The Complaint brings forth claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company and its senior executives purposefully misrepresented Brixmor's financial results by manipulating income items for nine quarters in order to achieve consistent quarterly same property NOI growth; (2) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Brixmor's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On this news, shares of Brixmor dropped over 20%, closing at $21.10 per share on February 8, 2016, on heavy trading volume.
If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than May 31, 2016, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff." Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Ryan & Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
