On July 29, 2013, Barnes & Noble restated its financial results for fiscal years 2011 and 2012. Then, on December 5, 2013, Barnes & Noble disclosed that it is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in connection with its restatement of earnings. Barnes & Noble further revealed that the SEC is also investigating a separate matter related to a former employee's allegation that the Company improperly allocated certain Information Technology expenses between its NOOK and retail segments for purposes of segment reporting. The price of Barnes & Noble's stock fell significantly following this news.  

Our investigation concerns whether the Barnes & Noble board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
