The Complaint charges that Pitney Bowes and certain of its directors and officers violated federal securities laws by issuing misleading statements concerning the Company’s business and financial condition.
Specifically, defendants failed to disclose the following: (i) that Pitney Bowes was experiencing a slowdown in sales of equipment and software and supplies to the financial services sector; (ii) that revenues in the Company’s U.S. mailing segment had dramatically declined and were not performing according to internal expectations;
(iii) that the Company’s international operations were not performing to internal expectations as market liberalization and deregulation were causing customers to delay purchasing decisions; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, there was no reasonable basis for defendants’
positive statements about the Company, its operations and earnings.
According to the Complaint, on October 29, 2007, after the Company revealed factors that had caused Pitney Bowes to drastically miss promised earnings, the value of Pitney Bowes’s stock declined significantly.
