market at the time and the uncertainty generated by the press releases, the price of the

Company stock dropped. The disconnect between the text of the press releases, the

theories of fraud, and the allegations of wrongdoing leads to the conclusion that the

case is not about securities fraud. Rather, it is about an attempt to find securities fraud

after the Company’s stock price fell upon news that it was being investigated by the

SEC and was the subject of a grand jury subpoena. The case brings to mind the Latin

phrase post hoc ergo procter hoc. Simply because the stock dropped in price does not

mean that the drop was the result of securities fraud.

It is for these reasons that defendants’ motion to dismiss have been granted and

the case dismissed.

SO ORDERED.
