|Company:||Rosetta Stone, Inc|
|Class Period:||Feb-25-10 to Mar-1-11|
|Lead Plaintiff Deadline:||May-30-11|
|Court:||Eastern District of Virginia|
The Complaint charges Rosetta Stone and certain of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws. Specifically, the Complaint alleges: (i) that Rosetta Stone was facing intense competition for its products, including free competitive product offerings; (ii) that the free and lower priced competitive product offerings, not a temporary reduction in advertising, was having a material adverse effect on the Company's Class Period revenues, particularly U.S. consumer revenues; (iii) that the favorable sales booking numbers Rosetta Stone reported during the Class Period was the result of key retail partners maintaining inventory of the Company's products well above historic levels; and (iv) that Rosetta Stone's reported sales bookings and revenues during the Class Period were the product of manipulation.
On February 28, Rosetta Stone announced fourth quarter revenue of $74.3 million, a 5% decrease from the prior year, net income on a GAAP basis of $5.0 million, a decrease of 60% from the 2009 fourth quarter. On this news, shares of Rosetta Stone fell $1.77 to $13.19 per share.
