The Rosen Law Firm Files Securities Class Action Against SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc

The Rosen Law Firm announced that it has filed a class action lawsuit against SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. on behalf of purchasers of the company's stock in its April 18, 2013, initial public offering or on the open market from April 18, 2013 through August 13, 2014. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for SeaWorld shareholders under the federal securities laws. According to the lawsuit, Sea World failed to disclose in its IPO documents that it (a) had improperly cared for and mistreated its Orca population which adversely impacted trainer and audience safety; (b) continued to feature and breed an Orca that had killed and injured numerous trainers; and (c) consequently created material uncertainties and risks existing at the time of IPO that could adversely impact attendance at its family oriented parks. The lawsuit claims that when details of the Company's improper practices were revealed by the documentary film Blackfish, SeaWorld misled investors by claiming the decrease in attendance at its parks was caused by Easter holiday and other factors. The complaint asserts that the decline in attendance was really caused by the mounting negative publicity from the improper practices at SeaWorld that were revealed by the Blackfish film.
