On May 31, 2018, Microchip promised investors hundreds of millions of dollars in synergies following its acquisition of Microsemi Corporation (Microsemi). However, just months later, on August 9, 2018, Microchip disclosed that the Companys financial performance was adversely impacted by the acquisition of Microsemi. On this news, shares of Microchip declined sharply in value, falling $10.67 per share, more than 10%, to close on August 10, 2018 at $87.41 per share, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Companys business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Microsemis financial performance was underperforming Microchips expectations; and (2) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants positive statements about the Companys business, operations, and prospects, including positive statements about Microsemi, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
