FOX & KILSHEIMER LLP ANNOUNCES CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST ABERCROMBIE
& FITCH CO. AND LAZARD FRERES
NEW YORK - , Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP filed a Class Action lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ("A&F" or the "Company") (NYSE:ANF) and
certain of its officers and directors. The suit is brought on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of A&F between October 8, 1999 and October 13, 1999,
inclusive (the "Class Period").
The lawsuit charges A&F and certain of its top officers and directors with violations of the securities laws and regulations of the United States. The
complaint alleges that defendants intentionally withheld material information from the market. Defendants knew the Company was experiencing a slow down in same-store growth which is a very important indicator of
present and future growth in revenues and earnings. Rather than making a timely, public disclosure of this material information as required by the federal securities law, on or about Thursday, October 7, 1999,
A&F selectively disclosed this information to an analyst at Lazard Freres. As a result, Lazard's "top" clients were able to unload significant holdings in A&F's stock prior to the October 13, 1999 public
disclosure. Consequently, A&F's stock price dropped from approximately $38.93 to $26.31
