HP Class Action Lawsuit Allegations

HP is a provider of products, technologies, software, solutions, and services to individual consumers, small-and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sector. The Company has been named in a Class Action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Hewlett-Packard Co. According to the complaint, Defendants failed to disclose material information to the investing public that HP’s business model was not working, as the Company was unable to leverage its extensive portfolio and scale of products and services in a strategically beneficial manner.

According to the lawsuit failed to disclose that:
WebOS, the TouchPad and the PC business were not central to HP’s business model and webOS would not be integrated across the Company’s entire product line.
The TouchPad hardware was inefficient, limiting the degree of effectiveness of the webOS operating system.
Defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about HP’s turnaround, revenue growth rates, market share, new product introductions, diluted EPS, and the Company’s ability to deliver upon its long-term growth model.

According to the complaint, Defendants repeatedly assured investors that HP has a unique position in the market to expand and they were confident in their ability to deliver their revenue outlook for the fiscal year 2011.  The Company’s misleading sales projections in combination with its failure to disclose negative business trends, led to artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, reaching a high of $48.99 per share on February 16, 2011. When the Company issued disappointing third quarter fiscal 2011 financial result and issued revised guidance for fiscal year 2011, HP’s stock declined $1.88 per share, to close at $29.51 per share.
