Class Action Lawsuit Filed
On Friday, August 13, 2021 a class action lawsuit was filed against Live Ventures in federal court in Nevada. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of investors who have losses from owning shares of the company during the class period.
The class action complaint alleges that Live Ventures failed to disclose negative information about the company’s business and prospects.
Specific allegations included in the complaint are that the company’s earnings per share in fiscal year 2016 were less than reported, that the company used “an artificially low share count to boost the earnings per share by 40%”, and that the company overstated pre-tax income.
It is also alleged that the company’s acquisition of ApplianceSmart was reported incorrectly and did not conform with generally acceptable accounting practices, and that the company’s CEO received more compensation than was disclosed to investors.
On August 4, 2021 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed charges against Live Ventures regarding the same allegations in the class action lawsuit. News of the SEC’s charges caused shares of the company’s stock to fall sharply and damaging investors.
