About the Lawsuit

Tesco and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

Tesco, together with its subsidiaries, operates as a grocery retailer. The Company also provides retail banking, financial, and insurance services. KSF's investigation is focused on Tesco's September 22, 2014 disclosure that the Company is investigating the overstatement of its profit forecast for 2015 by approximately $408.8 million. According to the Company, its most recent profit forecast for fiscal 2015 was overestimated as a result of an accounting error related to revenue that was booked early and by delayed recognition of costs.

Following these disclosures, Tesco's stock dropped as much as 14%, or $1.68 per share, in intraday trading on September 22, 2014.
