The Complaints allege that BlackBerry actively misled investors about the success and financial prospects of its new BlackBerry 10 line of smart phones and claimed falsely that the line would herald in the Company's financial recovery. However, unbeknownst to investors, the introduction and poor market reception of the BlackBerry 10 line was actually further hurting the Company's business, operations and financial situation.
On September 20, 2013, BlackBerry admitted finally that it would incur massive charges due to unsold BlackBerry 10 inventory. The Company further announced it is preparing for deep staff cuts of up to 40% of its employees by year end.
Following this news, BlackBerry stock plummeted from a closing price of $10.52 per share on September 19, 2013, to a close of $8.73 per share on September 20, 2013.
