The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued
materially false and misleading statements regarding Family Dollar's
then-present sales demand, profitability and financial results for the first
quarter of 2013 and for December 2012. As a result of defendants' false
statements, Family Dollar's stock traded at artificially inflated prices
throughout the Class Period, reaching a high of $71.20 per share by November
30, 2012. It is further alleged that during this time Family Dollar's senior
executives cashed in, selling their own Family Dollar stock at artificially
inflated prices; during the Class Period the Company's Chief Executive Officer
sold more than $15.6 million worth of his Family Dollar stock.

On January 3, 2013, Family Dollar issued a press release disclosing that sales
in the Company's first quarter 2013 had significantly underperformed and that
the Company was slashing 2013 financial guidance. Upon this news, Family
Dollar stock fell $8.30 per share to close at $55.74 on January 3, 2012.
