("Inventure" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SNAK) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Inventure securities between March 3, 2016, and March 16, 2017, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period").

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On March 9, 2017, Inventure revealed that it would delay its annual filing on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 and that it expected to file a notification of late filing on Form 12b-25 with the SEC to obtain a 15-day extension of the filing deadline for the Form 10-K. Inventure said it needed time to complete certain intangible asset and goodwill impairment tests, and that, consequently, its independent registered public accounting firm had not finished its audit for its financial statements and the assessment of the its internal control over financial reporting.
On March 16, 2017, after-market hours, Inventure filed a notice with the SEC revealing that it would delay its 2016 fiscal year annual report. Inventure also said that it believes its statements of operations contained in the annual report "will differ materially" from those reported for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2015. Following this news, Inventure stock dropped $0.13 per share, or 2.5%, to close at $4.91 per share on March 17, 2017, and continued to drop in the following trading days, $0.48 per share, or 9.7%, on March 20, 2017, and $0.41 per share, or 9.2%, on March 21, 2017, to close at $4.02 per share on March 21, 2017.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, and failed to disclose that: (1) Inventure lacked adequate internal controls over accounting and financial reporting; (2) as a result, Inventure's statements of operations in its fiscal year 2015 results press release contained improper figures; and (3) consequently, Defendants' statements about Inventure's business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
