Background on the DreamWorks Securities Class
The actions charge DreamWorks and certain of its officers and directors
with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. DreamWorks,
based in Glendale, California, creates computer animated feature films,
television programs, and online virtual worlds.
On July 17, 2013, the Company released Turbo, an animated film
about a snail given super-speed powers. The film, which cost $135
million, grossed only $83 million at the domestic box office and only
$282.6 million worldwide, a huge disappointment for the Company.
DreamWorks then waited until February 2014 before it announced a $13.5
million write-down for the Turbo movie.
The actions allege that, during the Class Period, defendants made false
and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
DreamWorks improperly accounted for the Turbo movie prior to the
write-down; (2) DreamWorks improperly accounted for the write-down
related to the Turbo movie; and (3) the Company lacked adequate
internal controls over financial reporting.
On July 29, 2014, during a conference call with analysts, DreamWorks
disclosed that it is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange
Commission ("SEC (News - Alert)") for its February 2014 write-down related to Turbo's
performance. On this news, the price of DreamWorks stock fell $2.68 per
share, or 11.83%, from a closing price of $22.66 on July 29, 2014, to
close at $19.98 on July 30, 2014, on extraordinarily heavy trading
