NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. ("DreamWorks Animation" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: DWA) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, Central District of California, and docketed under 14-cv-06053, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased DreamWorks Animation securities between October 29, 2013 and July 29, 2014, 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").

DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. is a Delaware corporation engaged in the development, production, and exploitation of animated films and their associated characters worldwide. The Company was founded in 1985 and is headquartered in Glendale, California. Shares of DreamWorks trade on the NASDAQ Exchange under the ticker symbol "DWA".
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, prospects and performance. Specifically, during the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) DreamWorks improperly accounted for the Turbo movie prior to the write-down; (ii) DreamWorks improperly accounted for the write-down related to the Turbo movie; (iii) the Company lacked adequate internal and control over financial reporting; and (iii) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 29, 2014, during a conference call with analysts, DreamWorks Animation revealed that the Company is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for the $13.5 million write-down the studio took in February in relation to the poor performance of Turbo. The Company indicated that it is cooperating with the SEC but would not elaborate on the scope of the extent of the investigation.
On the news, shares in DreamWorks fell $2.68 or almost 12%, on extremely heavy trading volume, to close at $19.98 on July 30, 2014.
