About the Lawsuit
Urban Outfitters 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. 

On September 9, 2013, the Company disclosed its second quarter financial results, reporting that comparable sales had grown only 5.2% -- far less than the 9% defendants' comments had led the investment community to expect -- and that markdowns had resulted in lowered overall sales revenues. Disappointing third quarter guidance was also issued.

During the Class Period, Company insiders sold millions of Urban Outfitters shares at artificially inflated prices, realizing insider trading proceeds, including President and CEO Richard Hayne, who sold over $50 million worth of shares and COO Freeman Zausner, who sold over $13.8 million worth of shares.
