Skechers Accused of Misstating its Financial Results and Potential for Global Growth
According to the complaint, Skechers officials touted the company’s strong sales growth while having no regard for the unsustainable increases in Selling, General & Administrative (“SG&A”) expenses. Although Skechers led investors to believe that the company would continue to see strong growth on a global scale, in reality, Skechers did not have the operational infrastructure to meet the demand for its products in many of its international markets. On July 19, 2018, Skechers announced that SG&A expenses grew by nearly 20%, causing earnings from operations to decrease by 5.7% and net earnings to decline by almost 24%. Since April 18, 2018, when news of Skechers’ increasing SG&A expenses first became public, its stock has fallen over 38% to close at $26.12 per share on October 18, 2018.
