The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants violated securities laws by failing to disclose the Company’s true ability to command a premium fee in upcoming negotiations to renew its television license agreement.

On May 16, 2014, the Company disclosed that it had reached a multiyear deal with NBCUniversal for its television programs Raw and SmackDown, stating that the annual value of its television distribution agreements is expected to reach $200 million, far below investor expectation. On a May 19, 2014 earnings call, Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon stated “We were a little disappointed in our NBCU deal, quite frankly…”

If you suffered a loss in WWE you have until September 23, 2014 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff.
