Lawsuit Overview

Defendant:Textron Inc.
Date Filed:August 22nd, 2019
Sector:Capital Goods

According to the Complaint, Textron is a global manufacturer of small aircrafts and recreational vehicles. On March 6, 2017, Textron expanded its recreational vehicle business through its $316 million acquisition of Arctic Cat Inc. Upon the completion of this transaction, Arctic Cat became an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron. Arctic Cat designs and manufactures a variety of recreational vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles. Arctic Cat revenues are generated through sales to independent dealers.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose that: (1) end-market sales of Arctic Cat products were slowing, resulting in a massive glut of old Arctic Cat inventory on dealers' floors; (2) in order to clear out this old inventory, the Company provided significant price discounts, which negatively impacted Textron's earnings; (3) as a result, Textron's positive statements about Arctic Cat's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading.
