NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a securities class action has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on behalf of those who purchased shares of Five Below, Inc. ("Five Below" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: FIVE), during the period between June 5, 2014 and December 4, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").
According to the lawsuit, defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose adverse information about Five Below's business and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the Company concealed from investors that its two founders intended to step down as CEO and Chairman. At the same time that the Company was concealing this material fact, it raised its fiscal 2014 sales and earnings guidance twice. With the Company's stock trading at inflated prices due to the omissions and misrepresentations, both of the Company's founders and its CFO took advantage, and sold $30 million worth of their personally held shares at fraud-inflated prices.
On December 4, 2014, Five Below disclosed that its sales growth had slowed and that it was reducing its sales and profit forecasts. On the same day, the Company's two founders also announced their resignations as CEO and Chairman. On this news, the price of Five Below stock fell, closing down 21% from its Class Period high.
The lawsuit claims that when these adverse facts entered the market, the price of the Company's stock dropped damaging investors.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all shareholders who purchased shares of Five Below during the Class Period described above.
