According to the complaint, Defendants misled investors by downplaying the significance of a massive cyberattack on FedEx’s acquired TNT Express N.V. business. More specifically, according to the complaint, Defendants misrepresented and concealed that (1) TNT’s customers permanently took their business to competitors after the cyberattack, (2) TNT experienced an increased shift toward lower-margin freight services, and (3) the significant costs and timeframe to successfully integrate and restore TNT’s business.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and the extent to which Defendants may have misled investors about TNT’s deteriorating business,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding FedEx should consider their options to help in the lawsuit or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
