Robbins LLP is Investigating Allegations that Seritage Growth Properties (SRG) Misled Investors Regarding its Business Prospects

Robbins LLP informs investors that a shareholder filed a class action on behalf of persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Seritage Growth Properties (NYSE: SRG) securities between July 7, 2022 and May 10, 2024.  

The Allegations

Plaintiff alleges that on August 14, 2023, after the market closed, Seritage revealed that there was a “material weakness” in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting “due to a deficiency in the design of our control over the identification of impairment indicators for investments in real estate and documentation of evidence of review.” Moreover, the deficiency related “to the failure to identify potential indicators of impairment related to development projects in a timely manner.” On this news, Seritage’s stock price fell $0.86, or 9.67%, to close at $8.03 per share on August 15, 2023,

The complaint continues that on May 10, 2024, Seritage released its first quarter 2024 financial results, revealing it was “adjusting [its] pricing projections for some of [its] assets.” As a result, the gross value of the Company’s portfolio of assets was reduced by at least $325 million. On this news, Seritage’s stock price fell $2.54, or 27.3%, to close at $6.78 per share on May 13, 2024

According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants failed to disclose to investors that (1) the Company lacked effective internal controls regarding the identification and review of impairment indicators for investments in real estate, and (2) as a result, the Company had overstated the value and projected gross proceeds of certain real estate assets.
