Intel slapped with class action lawsuit over foundry revenues — litigants allege securities fraud

It is always very painful in transformation. Will it go up or down? Good luck to intel.

The law firm alleges Intel is misrepresenting its financial results

Levi & Korsinsky, a class action attorneys' firm, is calling Intel investors to join a class action suit against the company. The suit alleges that the semiconductor giant failed to properly disclose losses generated by its manufacturing division in January when it reported its 2023 results.

Starting Q1 2024, Intel adopted its so-called 'internal foundry' model, under which its product divisions and external clients would buy manufacturing and packaging services from Intel Foundry, an independent division within Intel. Before Q1 2024, Intel did not report the results of its manufacturing division separately; instead, it only published the results of its Intel Foundry Services unit that sold manufacturing services to external customers.

After Intel fully disclosed its plans about segments reporting on April 2, 2024, it had to recast results of Intel Foundry as a separate entity for several previous years, and it turned out that in 2023, the newly formed division lost some $7 billion, which sent Intel stock to a downward spiral.

It also turned out that Intel outsources roughly 30% of its production to TSMC and other contract chipmakers; this upset investors even further. When the company reported results of its manufacturing arm in Q1 2024 (on April 25, 2024), it turned out that Intel Foundry lost $2.5 billion on revenue of $4.4 billion in Q1 2024. About one-third of Intel's capitalization has been lost since the beginning of the year.

The complaint alleges that Intel's Foundry Services's growth and profit were misrepresented, experiencing significant losses and declining product profit in 2023. This led to misleading positive statements about the Company's business and Intel Foundry strategy. This is what Levi & Korsinsky's filed class action suit is all about.

Here is the description of the case by the class action attorneys. The filed complaint alleges that the defendants made false statements and/or concealed that:

(1) the growth of Intel Foundry Services was not indicative of revenue growth reportable under the Internal segment; (2) the Foundry experienced significant operating losses in 2023; (3) the Foundry experienced a decline in product profit driven by lower internal revenue; (4) as a result the Foundry model would not be a strong tailwind to the Company's IFS strategy; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Investors who believe they lost money on Intel's stock from January 24 to April 25, 2024, have until July 2, 2024, to request to be the lead plaintiff.

 
I wonder if they will bring up the $15B in lifetime foundry revenue they have already signed with external customers? That seems to be a misleading statement if I understand it correctly, which I probably don't.
 
Hopefully these lawsuits don’t push Intel into bankruptcy or other drastic moves like shutting down the fabs.
 
It wont. These are the typical bogus lawsuits trotted out by predatory law firms that want to capitalize on investor angst. This happens whenever a stock does poorly. It will go nowhere.

The lawyers will get paid, otherwise they would not do it. Here is the law firm:


I'm impressed.

I’m sure Intel legal dotted all their “i’s” . I see this kind of thing all the time whenever a stock depreciates rapidly. Law firms try to jump in and file a class action alleging some sort of wrong doing despite the fact everything I’m sure Intel releases is bookended with significant preamble. Also Intel never said foundry wasn’t losing money. I’m pretty sure IFS has show that rather explicitly. The only thing has changed is that they are projecting that break even is happening later in the decade. Which while disappointing for investors I don’t see any illegality.
 
Lawyers/investors were surprised by Intel costs being 2x TSMC and Intel external foundry revenue being very small (and declining) Luckily we published all that info over a year ago.... So maybe Intel will use our website to prove intel didnt commit fraud :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

We also have Intel foundry revenue model for the next 5 years (updated quarterly). I would suggest Investors look at that:)

Will lawyers start piling on you because you reveal the truth? :):):)
 
Curious how Tower plays into this; were some of the early revenue projections based upon the Tower acquisition being successful.
