Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Barrett Business Services Inc. (BBSI) To Contact The Firm
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Barrett Business Services Inc. (“Barrett” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BBSI) of the January 5, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Barrett and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed in the Western District of Washington on behalf of all persons who purchased Barrett securities from February 12, 2013 through October 29, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.
Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company under accrued the compensation reserves of self-insured workers; (ii) Barrett overstated its earnings; and (iii) the Company failed to employ adequate internal and financial controls.
On October 28, 2014, Barrett announced a $37.8 million net loss in its 2014 fiscal third quarter, stemming from an $80 million pretax increase in workers’ compensation reserves.
Following this news, the price of the Company’s stock declined by $26.18, or over 58%, to close at $18.28 on October 29, 2014.
