NEW YORK, Dec. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Eros International Plc ("Eros" or the "Company") (NYSE: EROS) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, District of New Jersey, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Eros securities between June 17, 2014 and October 30, 2015 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 (the "Exchange Act").

Eros, together with its subsidiaries, co-produces, acquires, and distributes Indian language films in various formats worldwide. The Company distributes its film content across various distribution channels, such as theatrical, television syndication, and digital platforms. The Company also distributes its film content through physical formats, such as DVDs and video compact discs ("VCDs").
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company's reported earnings significantly overstated the economic viability of Eros's business model; (ii) the Company's accounting policy for amortization was unjustifiably aggressive in light of the impact of piracy on the long-term value of Eros's assets; (iii) despite the Company's reported profitability, Eros generates no cash; (iv) Eros has only been able to stay afloat by issuing stock and taking on debt; (v) Eros significantly overstated the number of movies the Company distributed and the Company's theatrical revenues during fiscal years 2014 and 2015; and (vi) as a result of the foregoing, Eros's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
