SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Notifies Investors With Over $200k in Losses of Class Action Against Aaron’s, Inc. (AAN) & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 18, 2017

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2017 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Aaron’s, Inc. (“Aaron’s” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AAN) securities and certain of its officers, on behalf of a class who purchased Aaron’s securities between February 6, 2015 to October 29, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: www.bgandg.com/aan.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1933.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and misleading statements regarding its subsidiary, Progressive Finance Holdings, LLC (“Progressive”). The Complaint also alleges that Aaron’s concealed from investors that it was experiencing software issues that impacted the Company’s underwriting algorithm and that Progressive had lost critical data in February 2015, which negatively impacted its ability to make loans and collect payments.

On October 30, 2015, Aaron’s revealed that nine months earlier, in February 2015, Progressive Finance Holdings, LLC, its most lucrative subsidiary, had lost two important data feeds used to determine customers’ leasing qualifications and that this loss of data caused Aaron’s to experience “higher bad debt expense and merchandise write offs” and delayed its “ability to identify and begin collections on certain delinquent accounts.” Following these revelations, Aaron’s stock dropped $8.88 per share, or 26.47%, to close at $24.67 on October 30, 2015.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed.
