About the Lawsuit

General Cable 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.

These false statements and omissions included, in part, that General Cable: (i) understated cost of sales and overstated inventory balances; (ii) had a reconciliation process that was deficient as it failed to detect finished goods inventory; (iii) overstated inventory in its allocation of the purchase price among assets acquired, resulting in an understatement of goodwill; (iv) overstated its value-added tax credits by at least $18 million; and (v) improperly recognized revenue of approximately $30 and $7 million of gross margin in connection with "bill and hold" transactions for aerial transmission projects in Brazil.
