About the Lawsuit

Aaron’s and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On October 30, 2015, Aaron’s revealed that a software glitch affecting the credit qualification algorithm utilized by its subsidiary, Progressive Finance Holding, LLC, had resulted in the loss of critical data as well as the Company’s ability to make lease qualification determinations and collect payments.  Aaron’s further announced that the problems had first been discovered in February, nine months prior to the revelation.

On this news, the price of Aaron’s shares plummeted.
