About the Lawsuit

Family Dollar Stores and certain of its senior executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements, during the Class Period, in violation of federal securities laws.

On January 3, 2013, Family Dollar published a release disclosing 1Q:13 sales (the period ended 11/24/12) well below guidance. According to the Company, sales had slowed and inventory had grown well above plan. After reducing guidance, shares of Family Dollar fell almost 13%, or $8.30 per share.

During the Class Period, Family Dollar failed to disclose that: (i) it was suffering from deficient internal controls and procedures; and, that (ii) it had filed to disclose its true financial and operational condition.
