The investigation concerns whether Qurate misled investors regarding its
financial performance for the period ended June 30, 2016, specifically
the performance of the Company’s rising bad debt expenses. On August 5,
2016, Qurate issued a press release announcing financial results for the
second quarter ended June 30, 2016, and disclosed “significant
headwinds” and sales declines at QVC, the Company’s subsidiary, as
compared to prior periods. Later that day, Qurate then disclosed “higher
than expected write-offs on Easy Pay purchases from October and November
of last year” and announced increased reserves for prior period
purchases and a decision to moderate Easy-Pay usage. On this news,
Qurate shares fell $5.69, or over 21%, to close at $20.61 on August 5,
2016, thereby injuring investors.
