INVESTOR ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Shareholders Who Have Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In GoPro, Inc. To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of GoPro, Inc. (Nasdaq: GPRO) ("GoPro" or the "Company") securities during the period between September 19, 2016 and November 4, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until January 17, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in GoPro securities during the Class Period. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period that GoPro's Karma drones were prone to losing power midflight causing them to fall out of the sky; that the Company had significantly overstated the utility of and likely customer demand for the Karma drones; and once the information became publicly known, it would necessitate a costly recall of the Company's Karma drones.

According to the complaint, following a November 3, 2016 press release and a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announcing a significant decrease from the previously provided financial guidance for 2016, and a November 8, 2016 announcement of a recall of approximately 2,500 Karma drones due to them losing power during operation, the value of GoPro shares declined significantly.
