Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. Class Action

Robbins LLP is Investigating the Allegations Against Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc.

Robbins LLP informs investors that a shareholder filed a class action on behalf of purchasers of Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS) common stock between May 25, 2022 and August 21, 2023. Dick’s is a leading sporting goods retailer that sells sports equipment, apparel, footwear, and accessories to retail consumers throughout the United States. 

According to the complaint, defendants misrepresented Dick’s inventory, margins, and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose that: (a) demand for products in Dick’s Outdoor segment was slowing faster than defendants represented, resulting in excess inventory; (b) the “structural changes” that defendants repeatedly touted, including differentiated products, improved pricing technology, and more efficient clearance channels, did not allow the Company to manage its excess inventory without hurting the Company’s profitability; and (c) the need to liquidate excess inventory, including in the Outdoor segment, would have a materially negative effect on the Company’s profitability.

On August 22, 2023, Dick’s announced disappointing results for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 and attributed significantly reduced margins and profitability primarily to promotional sales of excess Outdoor inventory. Following this announcement, the price of Dick’s common stock declined 24% to close at $111.53 per share.
