The complaint accuses Defendants of having falsely assured investors that they were focused on bringing expenses in line with expected sales and the Company’s disproportionate Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”) expense growth was slowing down.
When, on April 18, 2018, Defendants reported the Company’s SG&A expense growth drastically outpaced sales growth, the price of Skechers USA shares fell $11.38 (or, about 27%) to close at $30.70 on April 20, 2018.
Then, on July 19, 2018, Defendants again reported the Company’s SG&A expense growth drastically outpaced sales growth. This news drove the price of Skechers USA shares down $6.98, or over 20%, to close at $26.27 the next day.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses, the extent to which Defendants’ class period statements artificially inflated the price of Skechers shares, and possibly suspicious insider sales,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
