SIB Fixed Cost Reduction Secures Over $2.5 Million for Clients in LCD Screen Class Action Settlement

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - November 12, 2014) - SIB Fixed Cost Reduction, a company specializing in reducing recurring monthly expenses for multiple-location companies, announced today that they have successfully secured over $2.5 million for their clients, stemming from a class action settlement regarding LCD screen purchases.

The settlement was initiated when several state attorneys general, along with private attorneys, sued LCD screen manufacturers for illegal price-fixing practices in which the companies coordinated to limit the supply of LCD flat-screens for computers and televisions from 1999 to 2006. Individuals and companies who purchased LCD screens from these companies during that time period were eligible for a share of the resulting settlement based on the number of products they purchased.

SIB assisted several of its clients in filing claims and securing settlement funds, which were released by the claims administrator earlier this week. While SIB's normal services consist of reducing fixed monthly costs by negotiating optimal pricing for its clients, the class action claims process fits into SIB's mission of seeking all available refunds and credits due to its clients. In this case, a variety of SIB's clients were eligible, including restaurant chains, a national retailer, a hotel group, and a university.

"It's always exciting to present out clients with found money that goes straight to their bottom line," said Dan Schneider, CEO of SIB. "In this case, it took most of our clients less than an hour to provide the basic information, and our team handled the rest of the work involved with filing the claim."
