SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Class Action against AirMedia Group, Inc. and Certain Officers - AMCN



NEW YORK, July 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against AirMedia Group, Inc. ("AirMedia" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: AMCN) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased AirMedia securities between April 15, 2015 and June 15, 2015 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 "Exchange Act"). 

If you are a shareholder who purchased AirMedia securities during the Class Period, you have until August 24, 2015 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll free, ext. 9980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and number of shares purchased.

AirMedia operates out-of-home advertising platforms primarily in the People's Republic of China. The company operates a network of digital TV screens on planes operated by seven airlines; traditional media in airports, such as light boxes, billboards, and painted advertisements; and gas station media displays, as well as other outdoor media displays out of the air travel advertising sector. 

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and misleading statements regarding the purported sale of a 5% interest in AirMedia's advertising subsidiary, AirMedia Group Co., Ltd. ("AM Advertising"), to Shenzhen Liantronics Co. Ltd., and the valuation of the subsidiary negotiated in the deal. AirMedia's press release announcing the sale stated that the deal "reflected the total valuation of AM Advertising of RMB3 billion," or $500 million. The complaint further alleges that defendants made additional statements during the Class Period claiming that RMB3 billion/$500 million was a solid valuation of the AM Advertising subsidiary. As a result of defendants' false and misleading statements during the Class Period, AirMedia ADRs traded at artificially inflated prices, reaching a high price of $7.70 per ADR in intraday trading on June 15, 2015.

On June 15, 2015, the Company issued a press release announcing that it had entered into a definitive agreement to sell a 75% equity interest in AM Advertising to Beijing Longde Wenchuang Fund Management Co., Ltd. for RMB2.1 billion/$344.4 million, significantly less than the purported value the Company had claimed the subsidiary was worth during the Class Period.

On this news, the price of AirMedia ADRs fell more than 50% over the next two days.
