STEVENSON, Md., March 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Pearson plc (:PSO) (“Pearson” or the “Company”) American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) during the period between January 21, 2016 and January 17, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until April 25, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court.  The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action.  The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Pearson ADRs during the Class Period.  Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.  No class has yet been certified in the above action.The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that students were unlikely to purchase the Company’s products because more affordable alternatives were available.According to the complaint, following a January 18, 2017 announcement that the Company no longer expected to achieve its operative profit guidance for 2018 as a result of the North American higher education courseware market being much weaker than expected and that Pearson would rebase its dividend from 2017 onwards, the value of Pearson ADRs declined significantly.If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Pearson ADRs purchased on or after January 21, 2016 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.  You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at [email protected] or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.  Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.Attorneys at Brower Piven have extensive experience in litigating securities and other class action cases and have been advocating for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s.  If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice.  You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT - Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors of Class Action Against Pearson plc (PSO) & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: April 25, 2017

NEW YORK, March 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Pearson plc (“Pearson” or the “Company”) (:PSO) and certain of its officers, and is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Pearson American Depositary Receipts between January 21, 2016 and January 17, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are advised to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/pso.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements in a series of filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Pearson forecasted positive financial projections, stating that it expected adjusted operating profit to be at or above £800 million in 2018. The company relied on making market share gains in North American Higher Education subjects where it was launching its "next generation" courseware to reach its goal. Pearson also said that education has great growth opportunities, and that due to tight budget, Pearson was ready to deliver its financial guidance. However, the complaint alleges that Pearson officials made overly enthusiastic projections for 2017 and 2018 regarding its U.S. education business when in truth, students were not likely to purchase Pearson's products when more affordable alternatives were available, which resulted in unsold products. On January 18, 2017, Pearson filed its Form 6-K trading statement for the month of January 2017 and announced that the company would not be able to meet its 2018 forecasts. Pearson mentioned "continued challenges and uncertainty in the North American higher education courseware market." Specifically, Pearson divulged that its net revenues dropped 30% during the final quarter resulting in an unprecedented 18% drop for the full year. This decline was due mostly to lower enrollment and an accelerated impact from rental in the secondary market. Pearson also said that it was beginning 2017 with a base level of underlying profitability around £180 million lower than it had expected the previous year. Following this news, Pearson stock dropped roughly 29% to close at $7.13 per share on January 18, 2017. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint you can visit the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/pso  or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in Pearson you have until April 25, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff.  Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is a corporate litigation boutique.  Our primary expertise is the aggressive pursuit of litigation claims on behalf of our clients.  In addition to representing institutions and other investor plaintiffs in class action security litigation, the firm’s expertise includes general corporate and commercial litigation, as well as securities arbitration.   Attorney advertising.
