The complaint charges Francesca's Holdings and certain of its executives with violations of federal securities laws. The complaint alleges that during the class period Francesca's Holdings and certain of its executives issued a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, specifically the complaint alleges that the Company concealed from its shareholders the following: (i) spring and summer weather and a competitive back-to-school retail environment weighed on same-store sales growth; (ii) same-store sales were declining; and (iii) the Company was not on track to achieve the financial results defendants had led the market to expect.

On September 4, 2013, following the announcement of dismal second quarter 2013 financial results and third quarter 2013 guidance, shares of Francesca's Holdings fell nearly 26 percent to close at $17.79.
