Malibu Boats is a designer, manufacturer, and marketer of recreational powerboats, including performance sport, sterndrive, and outboard boats. The Company sells boats via a network of independent dealers, including a material amount to dealers operating under the common control of Tommy’s Boats (“Tommy’s”). Malibu Boats recognizes a sale when the dealer takes delivery of the boat, regardless of whether it has been sold to the end user.

According to the Complaint, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Malibu Boats pumped nearly $100 million of its highest priced, highest margin, slow moving boat inventory into fifteen Tommy’s dealerships (the “Scheme”); (2) the Company artificially inflated Malibu Boats’ sales performance, market share, and stock value; and (3) the Company faced substantial risk of litigation from Tommy’s. The Scheme enabled the Company to represent that it experienced strong wholesale demand and sales, even as sales to the end user declined.

On April 11, 2024, after the market closed, Malibu Boats revealed, among other things, that Tommy’s had filed a complaint against the Company related to the Scheme. On this news, Malibu Boats’ stock price fell $3.34 per share, or 7.99%, to close at $38.48 per share on April 12, 2024.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 28, 2024. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
