BALA CYNWYD, Pa., July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by THQ, Inc. ("THQ" or the "Company") (Nasdaq- THQI-News).
A class action lawsuit commenced in the United States District Court for the Central District of California alleges that THQ and certain of its executive officers misrepresented or failed to disclose that the Company's uDraw GameTablet for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 was not being purchased in significant numbers and because demand was below internal expectations, the Company would have to take back or provide price protection on hundreds of thousands units. As a result, the Defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their previous positive statements and were forced to announce on December 7, 2011 that the Company expected net sales to be approximately 25% below its previously announced guidance for the third quarter of 2012. Then on February 2, 2012, THQ announced financial results for the third quarter of 2012, reporting a net loss of $55.9 million. On this news, THQ stock fell approximately 30%.
