Faruqi & Faruqi Alert: comScore, Inc.

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in comScore, Inc.  (“comScore” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SCOR) of the May 9, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased comScore securities between May 5, 2015 and March 7, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Sommer v. comScore, Inc. et al, No. 1:16-cv-01820 was filed on March 10, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge John G. Koeltl.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to file its most recent Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 in a timely manner due to a recently announced internal accounting review. 
Specifically, on March 7, 2016, the Company filed an amendment to a Notice of Late Filing previously filed on February 29, 2016, regarding its upcoming Form 10-K filing. The amendment disclosed that on March 5, 2016, the Company’s Audit Committee, along with independent public accountants, was conducting a review of the Company’s financial results. The Company also announced that it would not file its Form 10-K until after the Audit Committee completed its review. Later that day, the Company published a press release stating that it would suspend the previously announced share repurchase program in light of the current review.
On this news, Company’s share price fell $13.67 from $40.71 per share on March 4, 2016 to close at $27.04 per share on March 7, 2016—a 33.5% drop.
