Tech Data Corporation: Class Action


Tech Data Corporation

Publicly available records indicate that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors in Tech Data Corporation (NASDAQ:TECD) in connection to alleged violations of securities laws by TECD. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding investments made in Tech Data Corporation between June 1, 2017 and August 31, 2017.

The class action complaint specifically alleges that during the period in question, TECD might have provided false and/or misleading material information, and/or failed to disclose adverse material information to the public, namely: that the company was suffering various issues related to execution and operations; that the issues in question were affecting TECD’s financial results; that due to these issues, the company was not going to meet the figures projected by its guidance; and that consequently the company’s statements to the public during the relevant period were false and misleading. When the company’s CEO announced in a Q2 earnings call on August 31, 2017 that TECD was suffering issues that “impacted us in this quarter in a way that was much larger than we anticipated,” shares in the company’s stock declined $22.83/share on that day.

According to the company’s website, Tech Data Corporation is “one of the world’s largest distributors of technology products, services, and solutions.” The description continues: “Companies like HP, Apple, Cisco, Microsoft—and hundreds of others—depend on us to bring many of their products to market.
