The complaint charges Dell and certain of its officers and directors
with violations of the Exchange Act. During the Class Period, as alleged
in the complaint, defendants issued materially false and misleading
statements regarding the Company's financial performance and future
prospects and failed to disclose adverse facts, including that: (i) Dell
was experiencing severe market pricing pressures associated with its
notebook and desktop personal computer ("PC") products, particularly in
its European, Middle Eastern and African ("EMEA") and Asia-Pacific,
Japanese ("APJ") markets; (ii) as a result of such extreme pricing
pressures, Dell's management issued a directive not to pursue certain
notebook and desktop PC sales in its EMEA and APJ markets; (iii) Dell
was experiencing weakening demand for its notebook and desktop PC
products, particularly in its EMEA and APJ markets; and (iv) Dell was
experiencing material undisclosed operational deficiencies within is
sales function that were adversely impacting its Large Enterprise and
Public business segments.
On May 22, 2012, after the close of trading, Dell issued a press release
disclosing that revenues for its fiscal 2013 first quarter, the period
ended May 4, 2012, were $14.4 billion, approximately one-half billion
dollars less than Dell's guidance and Wall Street estimates. Dell also
disclosed that it was projecting revenues of just $14.7 to $15 billion
for its fiscal 2013 second quarter, when securities analysts, based on
defendants' Class Period statements, had been projecting revenues of
$15.4 billion. In response to these revelations, the price of Dell stock
fell from its May 22, 2012 closing price of $15.08 per share to close at
$12.49 per share on May 23, 2012, a decline of $2.59 per share, or more
than 17%, its largest single-day decline in over 11 years, on extremely
high volume of more than one billion shares traded, or approximately
six times the average daily trading volume during
the Class Period.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Dell
common stock during the Class Period (the "Class"). The plaintiff is
represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in prosecuting
