According to the Complaint, throughout the Class Period, Dick’s made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company overstated its adjusted EBITDA amounts; that Dick’s lacked effective internal controls; and that as a result of the above, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On May 12, 2017, Dick’s issued a Current Report filed on Form 8-K/A with the SEC, reporting that a “computation error resulted in a $23.4 million overstatement of Adjusted EBITDA amounts for both the 13 weeks and 52 weeks ended January 28, 2017.” Upon release of this news, Dick’s share price fell $2.62, or 5.22%, over the following two trading days. On May 16, 2017, Dick’s announced that sales at its existing stores in the first quarter of 2016 fell short of forecasts and advised investors that the Company planned to scale back new store openings in 2018 and 2019. After the release of this news, Dick’s stock price dropped materially, which harmed investors according to the Complaint.
