about us

The complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, defendants issued
a series of materially false and misleading statements concerning the
Company’s financial performance and prospects. Specifically, the
complaint alleges that these statements were materially false and
misleading because defendants failed to disclose and/or misrepresented:
(i) that the Company was losing market share to its competitors; (ii)
that the Company was having operational difficulties in implementing
its next generation of products; (iii) that the Company was
experiencing weaker sales in its Engineered Carriers and Paper and
Consumer Packaging segments, especially in North America; (iv) that the
Company was distracted by the loss of a bid on a large contract, which
resulted in decreased sales and price concessions on current contracts;
(v) that the Company was having a difficult time in moving its old
inventory; and (vi) that as a result of the forgoing, the Company had
no reasonable basis for its 2007 earnings guidance.
