On this news, PriceSmart’s share price fell $12.41, or more than 15%, to
close at $69.16 on October 26, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the
Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading
statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about
the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically,
Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company’s
omni-channel business strategy had failed to reach key operating goals;
(2) that the Company’s South America distribution strategy had failed to
realize key cost saving goals; (3) that the Company had invested
Trinidad and Tobago dollars into certificates of deposits with financial
institutions; (4) that these investments had been improperly classified
as cash and cash equivalents; (5) that the relevant corrections would
materially impact financial statements; (6) that there was a material
weakness in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting;
(7) that increasing competition negatively impacted the Company’s
revenue and profitability; and (8) that, as a result of the foregoing,
Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business,
operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a
reasonable basis.
