About the Lawsuit
Mattel and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On October 19, 2016, Mattel announced positive results for Q3 2016. However, the Company failed to disclose that it had issued an excessive level of inventory to its retailers which, although temporarily inflating revenue, required the Company to later make significant sales adjustments and discounts to clear the excess product and ultimately resulted in a material negative impact on performance. As a result, on April 20, 2017, Mattel revealed dismal financial results for Q1 2017, well below Wall Street consensus estimates.
On this news, the price of Mattel’s shares plummeted.
