The Intel Corporation class action lawsuit charges Intel and certain of its officers with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and seeks to represent purchasers of Intel securities between April 23, 2020 and July 23, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  The Intel class action lawsuit was commenced on July 28, 2020 in the Northern District of California and is captioned Huang v. Intel Corporation, No. 20-cv-05194.

Intel is a technology company that provides computing, networking, data storage, and communication solutions worldwide.  According to Intel, its 7-nanometer CPU technology is the next generation following Intel’s 10-nanometer technology.  In May 2019, Intel was projected to ship its first 7-nanometer products in 2021.

The Intel class action lawsuit alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose that: (1) Intel had identified a defect mode in its 7-nanometer process that resulted in yield degradation; (2) as a result, Intel would experience a six-month delay in its production schedule for 7-nanometer products; (3) Intel was reasonably likely to rely on third-party foundries for manufacturing its 7-nanometer products; (4) as a result of the foregoing, Intel was reasonably likely to lose market share to its competitors who were already selling 7-nanometer products; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about Intel’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On July 23, 2020, Intel disclosed production delays for its 7-nanometer products after Intel “identified a defect mode in [its] seven-nanometer process that resulted in yield degradation.”  On this news, Intel’s share price fell more than 16%, damaging investors.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Intel securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Intel class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff will act on behalf of all other class members in directing the Intel class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Intel class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Intel class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.  If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff of the Intel class action lawsuit or have questions concerning your rights regarding the Intel class action lawsuit, please provide your information here or contact counsel, J.C.
