Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (HDS ) of the September 11, 2017 Lead Plaintiff deadline in the pending securities class action.

On June 6, 2017, HDS reported first quarter 2017 earnings per share that missed analysts expectations. HDS also disclosed a plan to accelerate its investment spending in its FM segment and redeploy working capital into that segment, lowering its operating leverage below previously forecasted levels. And, HDS disclosed it entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Waterworks business unit, the nations largest distributor of water, sewer, storm and fire protection products, for $2.5 billion in cash.
These disclosures appear to contradict managements statements during two previous earnings conference calls with analysts and drove the price of HDS shares down by $7.24, or approximately 17.5%, to close at $34.03 on June 6, 2017.
Before this news and the stock drop, SEC filings show that the Companys CEO and Chairman (Joseph DeAngelo) sold significant amounts of his HDS shares.
"Were focused on DeAngelos stock sales as well as the apparent contradictions between the June 6 news and related management statements and what management previously told analysts and investors about the Companys business during the December 2016 and March 2017 earnings conference calls," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
