According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) NAPCO failed to address any material weaknesses with internal controls regarding COGS and inventory; (2) NAPCO downplayed the severity of material weaknesses regarding their internal controls; (3) NAPCO's unaudited financial statements from September 30, 2022 to the present included "certain errors" such as overstating inventory and understanding net COGS, resulting in overstated gross profit, operating income and net income for each period; (4) as a result, NAPCO would need to restate its previously filed unaudited financial statements for certain periods; and (5) as a result, Defendants' statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
On August 21, 2023, NAPCO said it would revise its financial statements over the first three quarters of its 2023 fiscal year. Inventories were overstated and costs of goods sold were understated in prior earnings reports, NAPCO said. As a result, previously disclosed net income is set to be lowered in the three-month periods ended on September 30, 2022, December 31, 2022, and March 31 of this year. Following this news NAPCO stock was trading down over 35% in pre-market trading on August 21, 2023.
