What is this Case About: According to a complaint filed against IBM, from at least April 4, 2017 through October 20, 2021, defendants overstated IBM's revenues from its strategic side of the business by misclassifying and/or shifting revenues from its non-strategic mainframe part of the business. Defendants' actions were intended to appease market expectations about the Company's future prospects and boost incentive compensation for its executives.

On October 20, 2021, IBM disclosed that it was going to suffer a revenue shortfall, with its Cognitive & Cloud Computing segment the main culprit. Unbeknownst to the investing public, the Company had stopped and/or curtailed its improper conduct, which caused Company results to suffer. On this news, IBM's common stock fell almost $13.00, to close at $121.07 per share on October 21, 2022.
