The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made numerous positive statements regarding the Company’s financial condition, business and prospects. The complaint further alleges that these statements were materially false and misleading when made because defendants failed to disclose adverse events surrounding the development of a new warehouse and certain technology.
On February 27, 2008, Limited Brands issued a press release reporting fourth quarter and full year 2007 earnings. This press release significantly lowered the Company’s previously issued guidance for 2008. In response to the announcement, the price of Limited Brands common stock fell from $17.82 on February 27, 2008 to $15.85 on February 28, 2008 on heavy trading volume.
