The complaint alleges that defendants failed to disclose that: (a) product defects in the Company's Luon yoga pants shipped on March 1, 2013 resulted in part from the Company's attempts to raise profit margins by cutting costs to the detriment of the product quality and the brand reputation; (b) the Company was forced to sell product at a discount to obtain sales and protect market share; that (c) discussions were underway concerning the possible replacement of CEO Christine McCormick Day; and (d) as a result of the defendants' positive statements, shares of lululemon stock were artificially inflated.
On June 10, 2013, lululemon founder Dennis J. Wilson sold 2 million shares of his personally owned stock. Following the close of trading, lululemon announced that Day would step down as CEO. The Company also acknowledged that it had discounted prices during the Class Period. Shares of lululemon stock fell from a close of $82.28 per share on June 10, 2013, to a close of $67.85 the following day.
