Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Substantial Losses Investing In Family Dollar Stores, Inc. To Contact The Firm

NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Family Dollar Stores, Inc. ("Family Dollar" or the "Company") (NYSE: FDO).

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120119/MM38856LOGO )

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that:  (1) the Company's efforts to increase sales on low margin goods had caused a significant reduction in Family Dollar's profits for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 and December 2012; (2) price cuts initiated for the purpose of moving less salable inventory had also diminished profits for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 and December 2012; (3) Family Dollar's sales of more profitable discretionary goods had significantly underperformed expectations in the first quarter of 2013 and during December 2012; and (4) excess inventories in Family Dollar's stores would significantly weigh down 2013 profitability.

On January 3, 2013, Family Dollar issued a pre-market press release disclosing that sales in the Company's first quarter 2013 – which had ended November 24, 2012 – had failed to meet expectations and slashed the Company's 2013 financial guidance.  The price of Family Dollar stock dropped on this news, falling $8.30 per share – or approximately 13% – to close at $55.74 per share on January 3, 2012.

Family Dollar's senior executives had sold their own Family Dollar stock at inflated prices, including its Chief Executive Officer who sold more than $15.6 million worth of his Family Dollar stock between October 3, 2012 and January 2, 2013.
