The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all those who purchased PlayAGS securities between August 2, 2018 and August 7, 2019 (the "Class Period"). The case, Chowdhury v. PlayAGS, Inc. et al., No. 20-cv-01209 was filed on June 25, 2020.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose to investors: (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.
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 a $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, PlayAGS's share price fell from $17.30 per share on August 7, 2019 to a closing price of $8.31 on August 8, 2019: a $8.99 or a 51.96% drop.
