Digital Generation purports to be the "world's leading ad management and
distribution platform." The Company claims to connect over 12,000 global
advertisers and 5,000 agencies with their targeted audiences through an
expansive network of over 40,000 media destinations across broadcast and
digital in 75 countries, managing approximately ten percent of the world's
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business,
financial performance, and prospects. During the Class Period, Digital
Generation touted itself as a Company achieving steady and consistent growth,
and poised for a strategic buyout on the basis of the Company's strong
performance and diversification. In order to cultivate this image, defendants
made a series of false and/or misleading statements regarding its growth and
value of its acquisitions, failing to disclose that: (i) the Company's online
segment was grossly underperforming, and well below the value reported to
investors; (ii) past acquisitions had masked the Company's declining revenue
base; (iii) the Company had vastly overpaid for its acquisition of Media Mind,
Inc. ("Media Mind") and other online segments in order to appear to be an
attractive acquisition target; (iv) the Company was not sufficiently poised
for a strategic partnership or buyout; and (v) as a result of the above, the
Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all
On November 8, 2012, the Company reported that for the quarter ending
September 30, 2012, an impairment charge of over $208 million was taken
against the online media assets it had just recently acquired: Media Mind,
Inc., Eye Wonder and Peer 39. This impairment represented a staggering 33%
write-down of the initial purchase price of these assets. The Company also
reported that its television unit took an impairment charge of over $131
On February 19, 2013, the Company issued a press release announcing that a
Special Committee of the Company's Board of Directors had failed to approve
any transaction or strategic alternative. In addition, the Company recorded an
additional $11.4 million write-down of its recently acquired online segments.
On this news, the Company's shares declined $2.53 per share or over 28% to
close on February 19, 2013 at $6.45 per share.
