Case Summary

The Complaint alleges as follows: Defendants misled investors by making numerous false and misleading statements about LeapFrog's current and future business results. In addition, the Defendants knew that LeapFrog was losing millions of dollars in sales and profits to Mattel's competing PowerTouch product. The Defendants downplayed the impact of the PowerTouch on sales of LeapFrog's products and falsely represented that the Company's sales and market share could actually increase. Defendants' false and misleading statements caused the price of LeapFrog stock to trade at artificially inflated prices and took advantage of the artificial inflation to sell millions of their own LeapFrog shares.

After the close of the market on October 18, 2004, after repeatedly assuring investors that LeapFrog would report solid financial results in 3Q04 and 4Q04 and that the distribution and supply chain problems had been fixed, the Defendants announced that LeapFrog's 3Q04 results would be significantly worse than the guidance previously provided by the Defendants. In response, the price of LeapFrog's stock plummeted $6.21 causing class members to suffer actual economic losses.
