Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe, founder of The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP announce that a federal class action lawsuit has been filed against Family Dollar Stores, Inc. (“Family Dollar” or “Company”) (NYSE: FDO).

In a recently filed federal class action complaint, Family Dollar and certain of its officers and directors were charged with violating certain provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that among other things, defendants’ misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Company’s intentional efforts to increase sales of certain consumables to better compete with particular competitors significantly diminished profits in the first quarter of 2013 and in December 2012; (b) significant price cuts made in an attempt to move unsalable items diminished profits for the first quarter of 2013 and December 2012; (c) the Company’s sales of more profitable items significantly underperformed expectations in the first quarter of 2013 and during December 2012; (d) inflated inventories in stores would significantly weigh down profitability in 2013; (e) despite defendants’ press releases on November 20, 2012 and December 24, 2012, the stores would actually be open in an attempt to boost declining sales; and (f) based on the above, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements regarding the Company’s sales and profitability during the Class Period. According to the complaint, when the true facts were discovered, the price of Family Dollar stock fell significantly.
