The complaint alleges that defendants violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.
Specifically, it alleges that the defendants failed to disclose and
misrepresented the following material adverse facts which were known to
defendants or recklessly disregarded by them that: (1) Audible’s growth could
not be maintained without material investments in strategic initiatives, (2)
Audible intended to pursue these cash-intensive business initiatives; (3)
Audible’s strategy, through these initiatives, would severely undermine
Audible’s future margins and earnings; and (4) as a consequence of the
foregoing, Audible’s plan for aggressive expansion posed a substantial risk to
the future stability of the Company and on the price of its common stock.
On February 15, 2005, after the close of trading, the Company announced
initiatives requiring substantial investments in infrastructure, new business
units and marketing, among other areas, that would materially reduce its
earnings and cash flow for the foreseeable future. On this disclosure, the
price of the Company’s common stock fell approximately 35% to $17.32 per
