INVESTOR ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Shareholders Who Have Losses in Excess of $100,000 from Investment in Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. to Contact Brower Piven Before the Lead Plaintiff Deadline in Class Action Lawsuit

Share:

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional
Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in
the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf
of purchasers of Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:SBGI)
("Sinclair" or the "Company") securities during the period between
February 22, 2017 and July 19, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period").
Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have
until October 9, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must
apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The
lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important
decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the
action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants
claiming the largest loss from investment in Sinclair securities during
the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead
plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet
been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose
during the Class Period that the Sinclair/Tribune Media Co. ("Tribune")
merger was not in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission
("FCC") rules and regulations, that Sinclair was not using its best
efforts to eliminate any impediment to regulatory approval, and that
Sinclair was engaging in non-arm's length transactions with buyers
connected to Sinclair's controlling shareholders in order to skirt FCC
ownership rules.

According to the complaint, following July 16, 2018 reports that FCC
Chairman Ajit Pai was circulating a draft Hearing Designation Order
("HDO") and sending the Sinclair/Tribune deal to a hearing before the
FCC's administrative law judge, and the July 19, 2018 announcement of
the FCC's final HDO order, which stated that there was a substantial and
material question of fact as to whether Sinclair had attempted to skirt
the FCC's broadcast ownership rules, the value of Sinclair shares
declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in
Sinclair securities purchased on or after February 22, 2017 and held
through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end
of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and
your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or
obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com
