The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona on behalf of all those who purchased Microchip common stock between March 2, 2018 and August 9, 2018 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Jackson v. Microchip Technology Incorporated et al, Docket No. 18-cv-02914 was filed on September 14, 2018 and has been assigned to Judge Eileen S. Willett.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by overstating and/or misleading investors about the value of its March 2018 acquisition of Microsemi Corp.

Specifically, on August 9, 2018, Company CEO Steven Sanghi admitted that Microsemi “was extremely aggressive in shipping inventory into the distribution channel,” a factor which would cause Microchip “some headwind for revenue for the next couple of quarters.”

On this announcement, Microchip’s share price fell from $98.08per share on August 9, 2018 to a closing price of $87.41 per share on August 10, 2018—a $10.67 or a 10.88% drop.
