Please complete this form and list your purchase and sale transaction(s) for Tech Data Corporation (“Tech Data”) (Nasdaq: TECD) common stock between June 1, 2017 and August 31, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”):
Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired Tech Data Corporation (“Tech Data”) (Nasdaq: TECD) common stock between June 1, 2017 and August 31, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
According to the complaint, Tech Data is a wholesale distributor of technology products. The company identifies itself as the link in the technology supply chain by bringing products from technology vendors to market and by providing its customers with logistic capabilities and services.
The Class Period commences on June 1, 2017 when Tech Data issued a press release announcing the company’s financial and operating results for the first fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2017.
The complaint alleges that, on August 31, 2017, Tech Data issued a press release and reported non-GAAP earnings per share on a diluted basis of $1.74, far from the previously announced range of $1.95 to $2.08. That same day, during a conference call, Tech Data’s CEO disclosed that the company was experiencing execution and operational issues, notably pricing issues, rebate issues and issues related to the integration of the Technology Solutions business acquired from Avnet, Inc.
Following this news, the company’s share price fell $22.83 per share, from a closing price on August 31, 2017 of $110.29 per share to a close of $87.46 per share, a drop of approximately 20.69%.
The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the company was experiencing execution and operational issues; (2) these issues were impacting the company’s financial performance; (3) consequently, the company would not achieve its guidance; and (4) therefore the company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
