Attention investors who purchased shares of PlayAGS, Inc. between August 2, 2018 and August 7, 2019:
Rigrodsky & Long is investigating claims brought in a securities fraud class action complaint against PlayAGS, Inc. ("PlayAGS" or the "Company") concerning whether PlayAGS and certain of the Company's directors and/or officers made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose materially adverse facts during the period of August 2, 2018 and August 7, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"), concerning PlayAGS's business, operations, and prospects. These misrepresentations and omissions artificially inflated the price of PlayAGS's shares throughout the Class Period.
Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of PlayAGS, Inc. (“PlayAGS” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AGS) between August 2, 2018 and August 7, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).
If you purchased shares of PlayAGS during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold PlayAGS, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Seth D. Rigrodsky or Timothy J. MacFall at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public: (1) that PlayAGS was experiencing challenges in its business in Oklahoma; (2) that, as a result, the Company’s recurring revenue would be negatively impacted; (3) that PlayAGS was experiencing challenges in its Interactive business segment, including delays in securing regulatory approvals and relevant licenses; (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, PlayAGS was reasonably likely to record a goodwill impairment; and (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, on August 7, 2019, PlayAGS reported a net loss of $7.6 million for second quarter 2019, which included a $3.5 million impairment to goodwill and $1.3 million impairment to intangible assets of the Company’s iGaming reporting unit, due to extended regulatory timelines which delayed revenues.
On this news, shares of PlayAGS fell over 51%, closing at $8.31 per share on August 8, 2019, on heavy trading volume.
