Ryan & Maniskas, LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Zillow, Inc.

Ryan & Maniskas, LLP ( www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/z) announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington on behalf of purchasers of Zillow, Inc. (“Zillow”) (NASDAQ:Z) common stock during the period between February 15, 2012 and November 6, 2012 (the “Class Period”).

For more information regarding this class action suit, please contact Ryan & Maniskas, LLP (Richard A. Maniskas, Esquire) toll-free at (877) 316-3218 or by email at rmaniskas@rmclasslaw.com or visit: www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/z.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants concealed that the Company had gained control of Autonomy in 2011 based on financial statements that could not be relied upon because of serious accounting manipulation and improprieties. In addition, defendants concealed known negative business trends concerning the profit margins of the Company’s Enterprise Services business, formerly known as Electronic Data Systems Corporation (“EDS”), which Hewlett-Packard had acquired in August 2008 for $13.0 billion. As a result of defendants’ false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, reaching a high of $29.89 per share on February 16, 2012.

On August 22, 2012, Hewlett-Packard issued a press release announcing a third quarter 2012 earnings per share loss of $4.49, largely as the result of an $8.0 billion charge for impairment of goodwill associated with the acquisition of EDS. On this news, the Company’s stock price dropped $1.56 per share to close at $17.64 per share on August 23, 2012. Then, on November 20, 2012, the Company disclosed it had taken an $8.8 billion charge related to its acquisition of Autonomy due to serious accounting improprieties. On this news, the Company’s stock price dropped $1.59 per share to close at $11.71 per share, a decline of 12%.

If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than January 28, 2013, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff." Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Ryan & Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
