The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of all those who purchased Advance Auto Parts securities between November 14, 2016 and August 15, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Wigginton v. Advance Auto Parts, Inc. et al., No. 1.18-cv-00212 was filed on February 6, 2018.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose or indicate: (1) integration issues surrounding the Company’s Carquest acquisition resulted in systemic inefficiencies and cannibalization of sales; (2) increased competition was negatively impacting sales; and (3) as a result, the Company’s statements about its business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Specifically, on May 24, 2017, Advance Auto Parts reported disappointing first quarter fiscal 2017 financial and operational results. The Company reported a quarterly decrease in gross profit, “primarily driven by investments in the customer, inventory optimization efforts and supply chain expense deleverage due to the comparable store sales decline.”  Further, Advance Auto Parts reported that its quarterly comparable store sales had declined 2.7%.  On this news, Advance Auto Parts’ share price fell from $140.66 per share on May 23, 2017 to a closing price of $133.02 on May 24, 2017—a $7.64 or a 5.43% drop.

Then, on August 15, 2017, Advance Auto Parts reported disappointing second quarter fiscal 2017 financial and operational results.  The Company disclosed, in part, that “[c]omparable store sales for the quarter were flat.”  On this news, Advance Auto Parts’ share price fell from $109.32 per share on August 14, 2017 to a closing price of $87.08 on August 15, 2017—a $22.24 or a 20.34% drop.
