FAIRWAY INVESTIGATION INITIATED BY FORMER LOUISIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates Fairway Group Holdings Corp. Following Disappointing Results, CEO Retirement and Analysts Downgrades
NEW ORLEANS --(Business Wire)--
Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a
partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces
that KSF has commenced an investigation into Fairway Group Holdings
Corp. (Nasdaq: FWM).
On February 6, 2014, Fairway announced its results for the fourth
quarter of 2014, disclosing that it had a net loss of 74 cents per
share, a bigger loss than the 70-cent per share loss analysts expected,
and revenue of only $205.7 million, which was $2 million less than what
analysts expected. Additionally, Fairway's same-store sales declined by
1.7% due, in part, to a compressed holiday shopping period and the
beneficial impact of Sandy in the year earlier due to a pre- and
post-storm stock-up. Fairway also announced that its Chief Executive
Officer Herbert Ruetsch would retire after 15 years with the company,
including the last 2 ears as CEO. William Sanford, President of
Fairway, will assume the role of Interim-CEO.
On this news, Fairway was downgraded by multiple analysts, and the price
of its shares plummeted by 29%-from $11.43 on February 6 to $8.12 on
February 7, 2014.
KSF's investigation is focusing on whether Fairway and/or its officers
and directors violated state or federal securities laws.
