Case Status:    ONGOING    
On or around 05/01/2020 (Date of last review)

Filing Date: December 24, 2019

According to the Complaint, Mattel designs, manufactures, and markets a range of toy products worldwide. Its portfolio of brands and products include such household names as FisherPrice, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Masters of the Universe, American Girl and Thomas & Friends. The Company purports to be the owner of one of the strongest portfolios of toy brands in the world with vast intellectual property potential.

On October 26, 2017, Mattel filed its financial report for the third quarter of 2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Complaint alleges statements in the financial report were materially false and misleading and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. The Complaint further alleges that the Defendants misled investors by reporting a net loss of $603.3 million for the third quarter which was understated by $109 million due to inappropriately calculating its tax valuation allowance.

On April 20, 2020, the Court issued an Order consolidating cases and appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
