According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI) common shares between March 1, 2017 and August 6, 2017, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between March 1, 2017 and August 6, 2017, the defendant failed to disclose that the Company’s retail segment was continuing to dramatically decline, as its ongoing “reinvention plan” was not meeting with success; ongoing changes to the Company’s operating plan brought about through the “reinvention plan” had already rendered the more than $168 million in goodwill being carried on Vitamin Shoppe’s books for the retail segment impaired and Vitamin Shoppe was improperly delaying recognizing that impairment charge; and as a result of the foregoing, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about Vitamin Shoppe’s financial prospects, including the viability of its return to profitability during fiscal 2017, and the success of its reinvention plan.

Those who purchased shares of Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI) have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
