The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota on behalf of all those who purchased Apogee securities between June 28, 2018 and September 17, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Mayer v. Apogee Enterprises, Inc., No. 18-cv-03097 was filed on November 5, 2018.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Apogee lacked the required labor force in place to ramp-up its production; (ii) Apogee was unable to hire, train and retain new employees; (iii) Apogee’s productivity and margins would be negatively impacted; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
Specifically, On September 18, 2018, Apogee issued a press release, also attached as exhibit 99.1 to the Form 8-K filed with the SEC announcing the Company’s financial and operating results for the second fiscal quarter and six month ended September 1, 2018 (“Q2 2018 Press Release”). During a conference call to discuss the Company’s financial and operating results for the second fiscal quarter and six month ended September 1, 2018 (“Q2 2018 Conf. Call”), Apogee’s chief executive officer, Puishys ultimately admitted that (i) Apogee was never ready to ramp up production and meet the previously announced growth and margins, (ii) The Company was aware of the labor market trends (iii) The Company failed to action any action to overcome said trends.
After the announcement, Apogee’s share price fell from $48.22 per share on September 17, 2018 to a closing price of $41.76 on September 19, 2018—a $6.46 or a 13.40% drop.
