STEVENSON, Md., Nov. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Eros International Plc (NYSE:EROS) (“Eros” or the “Company”) securities during the period between June 17, 2014 and October 30, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until January 12, 2016 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company securities during the Class Period. Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company’s reported earnings significantly overstated the economic viability of Eros’s business model, that the Company’s accounting policy for amortization was unjustifiably aggressive in light of the impact of piracy on the long-term value of Eros’s assets, that despite reported profitability Eros generates no cash, that Eros has only been able to stay afloat by issuing stock and taking on debt, and that Eros significantly overstated the number of movies the Company distributed as well as the Company’s theatrical revenues during fiscal years 2014 and 2015.

According to the complaint, following the Alpha Exposure October 30, 2015 report indicating that due to aggressive accounting practices, Eros’ reported earnings significantly overstate the economic reality of its business model, the Company’s subsidiary financials reveal a lack of free cash flow, the Company enriched its controlling family at the expense of shareholders through a series of related-party transactions, and the Company appears to have made meaningful misstatements to investors, the value of Eros shares declined substantially.
