NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 7, 2020--

Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and KSF partner, former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have until May 5, 2020 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (“WWE”) (NYSE: WWE), if they purchased the Company’s shares between February 7, 2019 and February 5, 2020, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). This action is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

About the Lawsuit

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

On February 6, 2020, following a series of prior disappointing disclosures relating to its important, yet deteriorating, strategic relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Company revealed that it had failed to secure a favorable broadcasting deal with the Saudis and that the Saudi media rights deal would not be included in the Company’s financial forecasting.

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

The case is City of Warren Police and Fire Ret. Sys. v. World Wrestling Entm’t, Inc., et al., No. 20-cv-02031.
