Do you, or did you, own shares of comScore, Inc. (NASDAQ:SCOR)?

Did you purchase your shares between May 5, 2015 and March 7, 2016, inclusive?

Did you lose money in your investment?

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of comScore, Inc. (“comScore” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SCOR) between May 5, 2015 and March 7, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

If you purchased shares of comScore during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold comScore, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Timothy J. MacFall, Esquire or Peter Allocco of Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803 at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail to; or at:      

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects.  As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

According to the Complaint, on March 7, 2016, the Company filed an amendment to a Notice of Late Filing previously filed on February 29, 2016.  Therein, the Company disclosed that on March 5, 2016, the Audit Committee advised the Company’s Board of Directors that it did not expect to finalize its review before March 15, 2016.  The Company also disclosed that, as a result, “the Company is not in a position to file its Form 10-K until after the Audit Committee completes its review and the Company’s independent public accountants assess the conclusions of the Audit Committee in connection with their audit of the Company’s annual financial statements included in the Form 10-K.”  The Company also stated that it does not expect to make further comment regarding the Audit Committee’s review until its conclusion.  Finally, in a press release issued the same day, the Company announced that “out of an abundance of caution” it was suspending the Company’s previously announced share repurchase program.

On this news, shares of comScore plummeted over 33%, closing at $27.04 per share on March 7, 2016, on heavy trading volume.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 9, 2016.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
