Summary of the Action and Settlement
In this securities class action, the Court-appointed Lead Plaintiff, Public Employees’ Retirement System of Mississippi (“Lead Plaintiff”), alleged that Mohawk Industries, Inc. (“Mohawk”) and its Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum (together with Mohawk, “Defendants”) violated the federal securities laws by making false and misleading statements and omissions about Mohawk’s product quality, sales, and revenues during the period from April 28, 2017 through July 25, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). A more detailed description of the Action is set forth in paragraphs 11-27 of the Notice. Defendants have denied and continue to deny these allegations.
Lead Plaintiff, on behalf of itself and the Court-certified Class (defined below), reached a settlement of the Action for $60,000,000 in cash that resolves all claims in the Action (the “Settlement”). On May 31 2023, the Court held a hearing to consider final approval of the Settlement and related matters. Following the hearing, the Court entered a judgment finally approving the Settlement, an order approving the Plan of Allocation for the proceeds of the Settlement, and an order awarding attorney's fees and litigation expenses.
The Net Settlement Fund (i.e., the Settlement Amount, plus any and all interest earned thereon, less court-awarded attorneys’ fees and Litigation Expenses, Notice and Administration Costs, any required Taxes, and any other fees or costs approved by the Court) will be distributed in accordance with the Court-approved Plan of Allocation set forth in Appendix A to the Notice.
If you are a member of the Class, you may be eligible for a payment from the Settlement. The Class certified by the Court consists of:
all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired publicly traded common stock of Mohawk during the period from April 28, 2017 through July 25, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”), and who were damaged thereby (the “Class”), except for certain persons and entities who are excluded from the Class by definition as set forth in paragraph 28 of the Notice.
