The class action complaint alleges that the defendants issued false and
misleading statements concerning CarMax’s financial performance and
prospects. In particular, CarMax was not meeting internal sales targets
and was facing a 55% shortfall in its net income for first quarter of
fiscal year 2009, later prompting the Company to suspend its financial
guidance for the rest of fiscal 2009. According to the complaint,
defendants improperly failed to disclose that: (i) the Company was not
positioned to meet its sales targets or earnings objectives for fiscal
2009; (ii) CarMax had completed a refinancing of its warehouse facility
which had materially increased the Company’s funding costs; and (iii)
as a result of the foregoing, the Company had no reasonable basis for
its financial guidance for fiscal 2009. In the meantime, the individual
defendants allegedly sold 365,816 shares of their personally-held
CarMax common stock for gross proceeds in excess of $7.6 million.

On June 18, 2008, the Company announced its financial results for the
first quarter of fiscal 2009, the period ended May 31, 2008. CarMax
also announced that it was suspending its financial guidance for the
rest of fiscal 2009. In response, the price of CarMax’s common stock
fell approximately 11%, closing below $17.00 per share.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
CarMax common stock during the Class Period. The plaintiff is
represented by Dyer & Berens LLP, which has expertise in prosecuting
