The Complaint alleges that the prospectus and registration statement issued in connection with the Company's IPO were false and misleading because they failed to disclose that: (1) Ply Gem had agreed to buy back certain inventory from The Home Depot, Inc. ("Home Depot") as an accommodation related to a new supply agreement between the two companies (the "Supply Agreement"); (2) the Supply Agreement required that Ply Gem initially sell Home Depot a large volume of lower-margin product; (3) Ply Gem was experiencing ongoing labor inefficiencies and other ramp-up costs associated with the Supply Agreement; (4) April 2013 was a particularly weak month for the Company's siding operations, with management noting that "maybe it wasn't our worst April in eight years, but it was our worst in a while"; and (5) high customer inventory at the end of the first quarter was adversely affecting the demand for and sales of Ply Gem's siding products in April 2013 and May 2013.

On August 13, 2013, Ply Gem disclosed weak earnings in its quarterly financial results, driven largely by labor inefficiencies and other ramp-up costs associated with its Supply Agreement with Home Depot.  The Company also revealed that its siding department had experienced particularly slow demand in April and that it had repurchased certain inventory under the Supply Agreement, further undermining quarterly financial results.  On this news, the price of Ply Gem common stock declined $3.66 per share, or more than 19%, from a close of $18.92 per share on August 12, 2013, to close at $15.26 per share on August 13, 2013.

If you are a member of the class described above, you may, not later than July 18, 2014, move the Court to serve as a lead plaintiff of the class, if you so choose.
