About the Lawsuit
Costco and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On October 26, 2018, Costco filed its Form 10-K announcing its financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 2, 2018, disclosing that it had “identified a material weakness in internal control related to ineffective information technology general controls… that support the Company’s financial reporting processes” and as a result, it had concluded that “the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective.”
On this news, the price of Costco’s shares plummeted.
The case is Johnson v. Costco Wholesale Corporation, 18-cv-01611.
