Mohawk Industries (MHK) Investigation:
Hagens Berman is investigating whether, during April 28, 2017 through July 25, 2019, (1) Mohawk fabricated revenues by attempting delivery to customers that were closed and recognized these attempts as sales, (2) overproduced product to report higher operating margins and maintained significant unsaleable inventory, (3) improperly valued certain inventory or improperly delivered inventory with knowledge that it was defective and customers would return it, and (4) if so, whether Mohawk’s board should be held accountable.
On July 13, 2020, Mohawk disclosed it received subpoenas issued by the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Northern District of Georgia and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on these topics.
“We’re focused on potential damage to Mohawk and, if the company improperly recorded revenues and overvalued unsaleable inventory between April 28, 2017 through July 25, 2019, whether the company’s board of directors may be culpable,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
