The lawsuit claims that Tile Shop failed to disclose that one of its largest suppliers, Beijing Pingxiu (“BP”), is an undisclosed related company secretly controlled by Fumitake Nishi, the brother-in-law of the Company’s CEO and a Tile Shop employee. On November 14, 2013, Gotham City Research LLC issued a report asserting that the Tile Shop: (a) greatly exaggerated its true financial performance; (b) failed to disclose BP as a material related party supplier; (c) uses BP to overstate inventories, understate cost of sales and overstate gross profits; (d) purchases goods from BP at or near cost to allow Tile Shop to achieve an artificial cost advantage; and (e) overstates earnings. The complaint asserts that when this adverse information entered the market, the price of Tile Shop shares dropped substantially, damaging investors.
