Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against i2 Technologies, Inc. Seeking Damages on Behalf of Shareholders - ITWO

Little Rock, Arkansas, UNITED STATES


LITTLE ROCK, Ark., March 23, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Law Firm of Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP announced today that it has filed a class action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas on behalf of all individuals and institutional investors that purchased the securities of i2 Technologies, Inc. ("i2" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:ITWO) between January 9, 2001 and February 26, 2001, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint charges that the Company and certain of its officers and directors violated the federal securities laws by providing materially false and misleading information about the Company's business, and as a result of these false and misleading statements the Company's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the class period. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, unbeknownst to investors, Nike, Inc. ("Nike"), one of i2's significant customers, was experiencing problems with its implementation of i2's software, which necessarily put i2's relationship with Nike at material risk. Nevertheless, according to the complaint, defendants issued a series of materially false and misleading statements which failed to disclose, among other things, that the Company was experiencing software implementation difficulties with Nike and that these problems were material and severe and were damaging the Company's relationship with Nike.

On February 26, 2001, after the close of the market, Nike issued a press release revising its third quarter and fiscal 2001 earnings because of, among other things, "complications arising from the impact of implementing [its] new demand and supply planning systems" which were developed by i2. Shareholders of i2, upon hearing that Nike blamed its problems on i2 and i2's software, immediately caused the Company's stock price to collapse. By the end of the day, i2's stock closed at $27.56, down 22% from the previous day's close of $35.50. Prior to the disclosure of the above mentioned adverse facts, certain insiders took advantage of the inflated stock price by selling, in aggregate, more than $97 million in i2 stock to the investing public.
