The Complaint charges CROCS and certain of the Company’s executive officers with violations of federal securities laws. Among other things, Plaintiff claims that Defendants’ material omissions and dissemination of materially false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s business, operations and prospects caused CROCS’ stock price to become artificially inflated, inflicting damages on investors.
CROCS and its subsidiaries design, develop and manufacture consumer products from specialty resins worldwide. The Company offers footwear for men, women and children under the “CROCS” brand. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants failed to disclose
that: (1) the Company was experiencing significant distribution problems in Europe as it had moved distribution facilities and was experiencing distribution problems in Japan with a third-party distributor, causing the Company to lose tens of millions of dollars in sales; (ii) the Company’s sales were being negatively impacted by seasonal conditions as consumers reduced purchases of the Company’s products in cold weather climates; (iii) the Company’s inventory levels were building far beyond historic levels as sales began to slow and the Company’s sales began to be impacted by seasonality; and (iv) based on the foregoing, Defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company, its earnings and prospects.
On October 31, 2007, CROCS issued a press release announcing its financial results for third quarter 2007, the period ended September 30, 2007. Following the earnings announcements, CROCS held a conference call for analysts and investors. During the call, Defendants discussed problems at its European and Japanese distribution centers and its growing inventory, among other things. In response to these announcements, the price of CROCS stock declined from $74.75 per share to $47.74 per share on extremely heavy trading volume. In the period leading up to this shocking announcement, CROCS insiders took advantage of the artificially inflated prices to sell 963,162 shares for proceeds of $58,666,141.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of Class members and is represented by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, a law firm with significant experience in prosecuting shareholder lawsuits, and substantial expertise in actions involving corporate fraud.
