The complaint charges AMD and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. AMD is a multinational semiconductor company that develops computer processors and related technologies for commercial and consumer markets.
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements about the Company’s business and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges defendants made false statements and/or concealed adverse facts regarding AMD’s 32 nanometer Llano (the “Llano”) Accelerated Processing Unit (“APU”), which is a type of microprocessor that combines AMD’s central processing unit and its graphics processing unit onto a single piece of silicon, including repeatedly highlighting the “strong” and “significant” interest in, demand for, and unit shipments of, the Llano APUs, and falsely and misleadingly representing that AMD’s desktop business was in a “strong position” and that it would “continue to rebound” in 2012. As a result of defendants’ false statements, AMD stock traded at artificially inflated prices throughout the Class Period.
