Hamilton Beach Brands Holding Company (HBB)
HBB Class Action and Lead Plaintiff Deadline: July 21, 2020
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Hamilton Beach Brands Holding Company ("Hamilton" or "the Company") (NYSE: HBB) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Hamilton securities between February 27, 2020, and May 8, 2020, inclusive (the ''Class Period'').
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Hamilton had inadequate disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting, particularly with respect to one of its Mexican subsidiaries; (2) consequently, the Company’s accounting included certain irregularities with respect to the timing of recognition of selling and marketing expenses and the classification of certain expenditures within the statement of operations at this Mexican subsidiary, as well as potential misconduct with respect to the realizability of certain assets of the Mexican subsidiary; (3) as a result of all the foregoing, Hamilton could not accurately attest to its financial results, particularly with respect to these metrics, and was consequently at an increased risk of delaying the filing of its periodic reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; and (4) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
