BOSTON, Aug. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, is investigating whether The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. ("Hain" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: HAIN) violated federal securities laws following the Company's announcement that it will delay the release of its fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2016 results due to potential accounting errors, sending Hain shares plummeting.
Shares in Hain have fallen nearly 25% in after-hours trading, and continue to slide, on the Company's announcement that it is evaluating whether the revenue associated with the concessions granted to certain distributors was improperly recognized and that Hain would delay its fourth quarter and full fiscal year financial results.
