The complaint charges that Maxim and certain of its former officers violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by engaging in improper stock option backdating that caused the issuance of materially false and misleading financial statements during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, it was only on January 17, 2008, however, that investors leaned the truth about Maxim and the full scope and cost of defendants prior illegal options backdating, when defendants revealed that they would restate the Company's financial statements for a period of over 10 years, and that the Company would be forced to record additional charges of between $550 million and $650 million -- to cover the true costs of the Company's stock-based compensation expenses.
As a result of these adverse disclosures, shares of the Company immediately declined by over 22%.
