About the Lawsuit

Newell and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On January 25, 2018, Newell revealed expected 2017 core sales significantly below previous guidance partly due to ongoing retailer inventory problems and that it was considering significantly restructuring business by divesting industrial and commercial assets, which it anticipated would result in a 50% reduction in its customer base and global factory and warehouse footprint. Further, the Company disclosed the resignations of three members of its Board.

On this news, the price of Newell’s shares plummeted 21% to close at $24.81 per share.
