The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of AZZ Inc. Investors and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm


Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased AZZ Inc. ("AZZ" or the "Company") (NYSE: AZZ) securities between April 22, 2015 and January 8, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period"). AZZ investors have until March 12, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their AZZ investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On January 9, 2018, AZZ announed that the Company's audit committee and outside accounting firm determined the Company should have accounted differently for certain contracts within its Energy Segment.



The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, AZZ violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading public statements, and/or failing to disclose material information, to investors. Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants: (1) repeatedly misrepresented their financial results, (2) failed to report revenues in compliance with FASB accounting standards, (3) lacked adequate controls over financial reporting, and (4) failed to disclose the failure of more than two years of purported efforts to evaluate new accounting standards.

If you purchased shares of AZZ during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than March 12, 2018 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at http://www.howardsmithlaw.com.
