On September 9, 2014, a lawsuit was filed against SeaWorld Entertainment Inc over alleged securities laws violations. The plaintiff claimed that SeaWorld Entertainment Inc failed to disclose in its IPO documents that it had improperly cared for and mistreated its Orca population which adversely impacted trainer and audience safety, that it continued to feature and breed an Orca that had killed and injured numerous trainers, and that consequently created material uncertainties and risks existing at the time of IPO that could adversely impact attendance at its family oriented parks. The plaintiff claimed that when details of the Company’s alleged improper practices were revealed by the documentary film Blackfish, SeaWorld Entertainment Inc misled investors by claiming the decrease in attendance at its parks was caused by Easter holiday and other factors. The plaintiff asserted that the decline in attendance was really caused by the mounting negative publicity from the improper practices at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc that were revealed by the Blackfish film. On February 27, 2015 an amended complaint was filed and on May 29, 2015 the defendants filed their motion to dismiss the case. On March 31, 2016, the court granted the May 2015 defendants’ motion to dismiss and dismissed all claims without prejudice. On May 31, 2016, a second amended consolidated complaint was filed and on June 29, 2016 the defendants filed their motion to dismiss the second amended consolidated complaint. In a tentative ruling on September 29, 2016, the court tentatively denied the June 2016 defendants’ motion to dismiss the case.
