Investors who purchased or acquired Malibu Boats securities during the Class Period may, no later than June 28, 2024, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class.

According to the complaint, throughout the Class Period, the defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Malibu Boats engaged in an "elaborate scheme to over manufacture and pump nearly $100 million of its highest priced, highest margin, slow moving boat inventory into fifteen [] Tommy's dealerships"; (2) as a result, the Company artificially inflated Malibu's sales performance, market share, and stock value; (3) the Company was withholding certain incentives and rebates from its dealers; (4) as a result of the foregoing, the Company faced substantial risk of litigation from one of its top dealers, Tommy's Boats ("Tommy's); and (5) the Company's CEO departed due to this role in this scheme.

On February 20, 2024, before the market opened, Malibu Boats announced that the Company and its CEO Jack Springer had "mutually agreed" to cease to serve as CEO.

Following this news, the Company's stock price fell $4.33 or 9.1%, to close at $43.15 per share on February 20, 2024, on unusually heavy trading volume.

Then, on April 11, 2024, after the market closed, Malibu Boats revealed that Tommy's had filed a lawsuit against the Company alleging that Malibu Boats "engaged in an elaborate scheme" to "pump nearly $100 million" worth of inventory into Tommy dealerships since late 2022 to "artificially inflate Malibu's sales performance."

Following this news, the Company's stock price fell $3.34, or 7.99%, to close at $38.48 per share on April 12, 2024, on unusually heavy trading volume. The Company's common stock price continued to fall the next consecutive trading session, falling $2.34 or 6% to close at $36.14 per share on April 15, on unusually heavy trading volume.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff is usually the investor or small group of investors who have the largest financial interest and who are also adequate and typical of the proposed class of investors. The lead plaintiff selects counsel to represent the lead plaintiff and the class and these attorneys, if approved by the court, are lead or class counsel. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Communicating with any counsel is not necessary to participate or share in any recovery achieved in this case. Any member of the purported class may move the Court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of his/her choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
