The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals at Timberland violated federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose during the Class Period that demand for the Company’s key products had actually dramatically declined, that the Company’s inventory levels were rising, and that Timberland had significantly increased the Company’s advertising spending in order to buttress sagging sales demand. Instead, Timberland made contradictory statements that sales trends, cost discipline and inventory levels merited an anticipated return to a 15% operating profit. On May 5, 2011, Timberland disclosed financial results for the Company’s first quarter of 2011 that far underperformed those which Timberland had led the market to expect during the Class Period, as a result, the value of Timberland stock declined significantly.
