The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of HD Supply Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDS) who purchased shares between November 9, 2016 and June 5, 2017. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
