WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating EZCORP, Inc. ("EZCORP" or the "Company") for possible violations of securities laws relating to a July 18th announcement that, MS Pawn Corporation, a Class B shareholder entity controlled by Phillip Cohen, removed Paul Rothamel as CEO, President and Director of EZCORP.
Our investigation relates to certain conflicted transactions involving payments for advisory services to affiliates of the Company's controlling shareholder, Phillip Cohen. On October 9, 2013, EZCORP revealed in a 8K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that the Company extended its engagement of Madison Park, a financial advisory firm wholly-owned by Phillip Cohen, the beneficial owner of all of the Company's outstanding Class B Voting Common Stock.
