Oklahoma City, OK (October 25, 2018) – On October 19, 2018, a securities class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against Camping World Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CWH). The complaint alleges violations of federal securities laws, Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, including allegations of issuing a series of material or false misrepresentations to the market which had the effect of artificially inflating the market price during the Class Period, which is March 8, 2017 through August 7, 2018. More specifically, the complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding Camping World’s business, operations and financial condition. Specifically, the complaint alleges defendants failed to disclose, among other things, that the Company’s disclosure controls and controls over financial reporting suffered from a host of material weaknesses; that the Company’s historical financial results had been materially misstated; that the Gander stores had encountered integration setbacks, adversely impacting the Company’s earnings growth and profit margins; and that the Company’s core RV business was experiencing decelerating growth as the Company lagged industry trends and was losing market share to competitors. As a result of this information being withheld from the market, the price of Camping World Class A common stock was artificially inflated to a high of $47.19 per share during the Class Period.
On February 27, 2018, the Company issued a release revealing that the Company had “recently identified material weaknesses in [its] internal control over financial reporting.” The release also revealed that Camping World would need to revise prior reporting periods due to various “errors.” The cumulative impact of these misstatements required the Company to restate and reduce its 2016 basic earnings per share from $0.11 per share to $0.08 per share, as the prior reported basic earnings per share had been overstated by more than 37%. Thereafter, on March 1, 2018, Camping World announced that it would be unable to timely file its 2017 Form 10-K due to expected material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting. On this news, between February 26, 2018 and March 2, 2018, the price of Camping World Class A common stock dropped $4.63 per share, or more than 10%.
On May 8, 2018, Camping World reported disappointing financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, including a decrease in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin. In addition, the Company revealed adverse trends in its core RV business indicating that it had lost significant market share to its competitors. On this news, the price of Camping World Class A stock fell 17%. On May 22, 2018, Camping World announced it had replaced its auditor of 13 years, causing the price of the stock to decline another 10%.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all Camping World Holdings, Inc. shareholders who purchased common stock during the Class Period and are therefore a member of the Class as described above. You may move the Court no later than Tuesday, December 18, 2018 to serve as a lead plaintiff for the entire Class. However, in order to do so, you must meet certain legal requirements pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
