world wrestling entertain-a (WWE) Key Developments

Robbins Arroyo LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit Against World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc

Robbins Arroyo LLP announced that it has filed a federal securities class action lawsuit on July 25, 2014, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut, on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. securities between October 31, 2013 and May 16, 2014, inclusive, against the Company and certain of its officers and directors for, among other things, violations of section 10(b) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The complaint seeks relief on behalf of the named plaintiffs and all other similarly situated shareholders of WWE during the Class Period. The named plaintiffs are represented by Robbins Arroyo LLP. WWE Is Accused of Making False and Misleading Statements Concerning the Company's Ability to Double the Value of Its U.S. Television License Agreement. The complaint arises out of false and misleading statements regarding the ability of the Company to transform its earning profile through, among other things, the negotiation of a lucrative long-term television deal. The complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, certain of WWE's officers issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's ability to command a premium fee in upcoming negotiations to renew its television license agreement. Specifically, defendants caused WWE to issue false and misleading statements in public filings, press releases, and conference calls where they publicized their ability to renew their television license agreement at double the value in upcoming negotiations. These statements downplayed the fact that advertisers pay less to reach WWE viewers than traditional sports or other shows on the USA Network and the negative impact on the television license negotiations resulting from the Company's launch of its WWE Network.

WWE Declares Quarterly Dividend Payable on September 25, 2014

WWE announced that its board of directors declared the company's regular quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share for all Class A and B shares of common stock. The record date for the dividend will be September 15, 2014, and the payment date will be September 25, 2014.
