Foti, Jr., reminds investors that they have until March 20, 2017 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against Dollar General Corporation (:DG), if they purchased the Company’s securities between March 10, 2016 and November 30, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

Dollar General Investor Reminder: Hagens Berman Reminds Dollar General Investors of March 20, 2017 Lead Plaintiff Deadline

SAN FRANCISCO, March 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in Dollar General Corporation (:DG) of the March 20, 2017 Lead Plaintiff deadline in the pending securities class action.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired securities of DG between March 10, 2016 and November 30, 2016 and suffered over $50,000 in losses contact Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP.  For more information visit: https://www.hbsslaw.com/cases/DG or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing [email protected]. On March 10, 2016, in response to a securities analyst’s question about what the federal food stamp benefits program (also known as “SNAP”) revenues meant for DG, its Chief Executive Officer Todd J. Visos responded in part “SNAP for us is approximately 5% of our sales.  So it really has – it’s not a huge piece of the business”. Nonetheless, on December 1, 2016, DG surprised investors when it reported disappointing fiscal third quarter 2016 results and attributed the surprise in part to SNAP revenues affecting “about 56% of our store base”. This news drove the price of DG shares down nearly 5% to close at $73.48 per share that day. “Our investigation into this matter includes the truth of the CEO’s statement that SNAP revenues were not a huge piece of the business,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein. Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding DG should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program.  Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.  For more information, call Reed Kathrein at 510-725-3000 or email [email protected].

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Reminds Shareholders with Losses on their Investment in Dollar General Corporation of Class Action Lawsuit and Upcoming Deadline – DG

NEW YORK, March 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Dollar General Corporation (“Dollar General” or the “Company”) (:DG) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Middle District of Tennessee, Nashville Division, is on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Dollar General Securities, seeking to recover compensable damages caused by defendants’ violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
If you are a shareholder who purchased Dollar General Securities between March 10, 2016 and November 30, 2016, both dates inclusive, you have until March 20, 2017 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at [email protected] or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll free, ext. 9980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and number of shares purchased.  [Click here to join this class action] Dollar General is one of the largest discount retailers in the United States, with the main merchandise category being consumables, which includes packaged foods, perishables, and snacks.  As a discount retailer, Dollar General’s core customers are low- and fixed-income households, a significant percentage of which qualify for the federal food stamp benefits program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or “SNAP”). Beginning in 1996, SNAP benefits were limited to no more than 3 months out of any 26 month period for unemployed individuals who are not disabled or raising minor children. Many states waived this limitation in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. Given the improving condition of the U.S. economy, at least 20 states were planning to re-implement the limitation in 2016, which would go into effect in April at the beginning of the second fiscal quarter of 2016. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects.  Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (i) the announced limitations on SNAP benefits would have a material impact on the Company’s financial performance as 56 percent of Dollar General Stores are located in states that re-implemented time limitations on SNAP benefits in 2016, (ii) in turn, the impact of SNAP reductions would be disproportionate to the percentage of the Company’s overall sales comprised of SNAP payments; (iii) consequently, the Company’s financial statements were overstated;  and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, Dollar General’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On December 1, 2016, Dollar General filed a quarterly report on Form 10-Q with the SEC, announcing the Company’s financial and operating results for the quarter ended October 28, 2016 (the “Q3 2016 10-Q”).  The results announced in the Q3 2016 10-Q fell far short of market expectations, including a reduction in same-store sales, even though the Company had previously predicted annual same-store sales growth of 2-4%, and most analysts expected a quarterly increase in same-store sales of nearly 1%. The Company attributed its poor quarterly performance in large part to reductions in SNAP benefits, and finally admitted the true impact that SNAP reductions were having on its sales, stating that the benefit reductions “affect[] about 56% of our store base in the states that have reduced or eliminated the SNAP benefits.  And those states that have had the reduction or elimination, they are approximately 100-basis-point worse in comp. That gives you a real good idea of how impactful those SNAP benefits reductions have been.”  On this news, Dollar General’s share price fell $3.84, or 4.96%, to close at $73.48 December 1, 2016. The Pomerantz Firm, with offices in New York, Chicago, Florida, and Los Angeles, is acknowledged as one of the premier firms in the areas of corporate, securities, and antitrust class litigation. Founded by the late Abraham L. Pomerantz, known as the dean of the class action bar, the Pomerantz Firm pioneered the field of securities class actions. Today, more than 80 years later, the Pomerantz Firm continues in the tradition he established, fighting for the rights of the victims of securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, and corporate misconduct. The Firm has recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages awards on behalf of class members. See www.pomerantzlaw.com
