This is a securities fraud class action lawsuit against IMAX Corporation alleging that IMAX made a series of material misrepresentations to investors.
IMAX provided sound systems to movie theaters. In February and March 2006, IMAX issued press releases touting IMAX's financial success, and indicated IMAX's willingness to explore financial options. A press release issued as late as May 9, 2006 continued to mislead investors concerning IMAX's true financial condition. IMAX only came clean to investors after the SEC began an investigation into how IMAX recognized revenues from inactive movie theaters.
After these announcements the price of IMAX shares crashed, falling by 40.6%, or $3.91 on the following trading day. IMAX and its top executives knew that revenue was being improperly recognized, but failed to make the necessary adjustments, thus artificially inflating the stock.
