NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at JAKKS Pacific, Inc. ("JAKKS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: JAKK).
(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120119/MM38856LOGO )
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the shift in children's preferences toward electronic games were having a detrimental impact on demand for the Company's more traditional toys; and (2) JAKKS' poor toy sales were having a heavy negative impact on the Company's licensed toy properties.
After market close on July 17, 2013, JAKKS shocked the market when it slashed the Company's full-year forecast for revenues and earnings. The Company cited poor sales caused by a shift in children's playing choices in favor of electronic devices. Moreover, the Company stated that it would suspend its dividend and implement a major restructuring and downsizing plan. On this disappointing news, JAKKS shares fell $4.48 or approximately 39% percent from a close of $11.48 per share on July 17, 2013, to a close of $7.00 per share on July 18, 2013.
