Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, announces that a class action has been filed against AZZ, Inc. ("AZZ" or the "Company") (NYZE: AZZ) and certain of its officers alleging violations of the federal securities laws.

On January 9, 2018 AZZ announced that it had determined that it should have accounted differently for certain contracts within its Energy Segment.

It said it has been reviewing the impact of this change on its historical accounting and impacts on its 2015 through 2017 financial results and it said it would delay the release of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended November 30, 2017.

On this news, the Company's stock plunged, causing millions in losses to investors.

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas (Mullins v. Azz, Inc, et al., 18-cv-00025), alleges that between April 22, 2015 and January 8, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period"), the defendants repeatedly misrepresented their financial results, failed to report revenues in compliance with FASB accounting standards, lacked adequate controls over financial reporting and failed to disclose the failure of more than two years of purported efforts to evaluate new accounting standards.

If you purchased AZZ shares during the Class Period and wish to serve as a lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 12, 2018. As a member of the class, you may seek to file a motion to serve as a lead plaintiff or take no action and remain an absent class member.
