On August 20, 2012, ZAGG filed an 8-K in which it announced the resignation of Robert G. Pedersen, the Chairman and CEO of ZAGG, on August 17, 2012. Although the Company did not explicitly disclose the reason for Pedersen's resignation, the 8-K included a general discussion of the Company's policy prohibiting holders of at least 10% of ZAGG stock from engaging in speculative transactions involving ZAGG stock, such as holding those securities in a margin account. The price of ZAGG shares fell from $8.42 per share to $7.30 per share on August 20, 2012, representing a decline of approximately 13%. ZAGG stock closed as high as $13.03 per share on April 30, 2012.During a conference call with analysts on August 28, 2012, ZAGG confirmed that Pedersen's resignation was in fact related to his sales of ZAGG stock to meet margin calls both in December 2011 and August 2012. Current holders of ZAGG shares may have a claim against the board for breaches of fiduciary duties, gross mismanagement, and/or abuse of control.
