NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing
of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of the securities of
Ascena Retail Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASNA) from September 16, 2015 through
June 8, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS
CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU
MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS
MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. AN INVESTOR’S ABILITY TO SHARE IN
ANY POTENTIAL FUTURE RECOVERY IS NOT DEPENDENT UPON SERVING AS LEAD
PLAINTIFF.

According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
the Company’s acquisition of ANN, Inc., the parent company of Ann Taylor
and LOFT, was a complete disaster for the Company as ANN’s operations
were in far worse condition than had been represented to the public; (2)
to mask the true condition of ANN, Defendants improperly delayed
recognizing an impairment charge to the value of ANN’s goodwill and, as
a result, Ascena’s reported income and assets were materially overstated
and the Company’s financial results were not prepared in conformity with
GAAP; (3) many of the brands acquired in the ANN acquisition were in
steep decline and were also materially overvalued on Ascena’s Class
Period financial statement; and (4) defendants’ positive statements
about Ascena’s business, operations, and prospects were materially
misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details
entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
