Background on the OCZ Securities Class Litigation
The complaints charge OCZ and certain of its senior executives with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. OCZ is a California-based company that designs, manufactures, and distributes solid state drives (SSDs) and related computer components.
The complaints allege that, throughout the Class Period, defendants issued false and misleading statements regarding OCZ’s business, operational, and accounting practices and financial results. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose (i) that OCZ’s accounting for customer incentive programs was improper and misleading, (ii) that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls, and (iii) that, as a result of the foregoing, OCZ’s financial statements and projections regarding its business prospects during the Class Period lacked any reasonable basis in fact.
On September 5, 2012, OCZ significantly lowered its revenue forecast for the second fiscal quarter of 2013 to between $110 million and $120 million, from earlier estimates of between $130 million and $140 million. Defendants attributed the lowered guidance to supply constraints. Following this announcement, the price of OCZ common stock fell $1.01 per share, or more than 20%, to close at $4.35 on September 6, 2012.
