Background on the Plantronics Securities Class Litigation
Plantronics, incorporated in Delaware and headquartered in Santa Cruz, California, designs, manufactures, and markets integrated communications and collaboration solutions.
Plaintiffs allege that, throughout the Class Period, Plantronics made materially false or misleading statements, failing to disclose that (1) the Company had engaged in channel stuffing to artificially increase its sales; (2) the Company’s internal controls over inventory levels were not effective; and (3) the Company had not adequately monitored inventory levels leading up to multiple product launches.
On November 5, 2019, Plantronics disclosed a $65 million reduction in channel inventory “by reducing sales to channel partners” and significantly lowered its fiscal 2020 guidance. The same day, Plantronics announced that the Executive Vice President of Global Sales, Jeff Loebbaka, was departing the Company. On that news, the price of Plantronics common stock fell $14.44 per share, or 36.61%, from a closing price of $39.44 on November 5, 2019, to close at $25.00 per share on November 6, 2019, on extremely elevated trading volume.
