According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period Defendants issued materially false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that: (1) General Cable paid millions of dollars in bribes to government officials in foreign countries, including Angola, Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Indonesia, India, and Thailand, in order to secure business; (2) the foregoing conduct was in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1997; (3) General Cable's revenues were therefore in part the product of illegal conduct, and, as such, subject to disgorgement and unlikely to be sustainable; (4) the foregoing conduct, when it became known, would subject General Cable to significant regulatory scrutiny and financial penalties; and (5) as a result, General Cable's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
