What this case is about:

On April 19, 2016, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") issued an Order Instituting Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings, and Imposing Cease-and-Desist Orders and Penalties (the "Order") against the Respondents.  In the Order, the Commission found Logitech responsible for recurring instances of improper accounting between 2008 and 2013 related to a product write-down, warranty liabilities, and revenue recognition.  The Commission further found Doktorczyk and Bolles, both former officers of Logitech, responsible for the improper accounting for warranty liabilities that occurred during their employment.  The Commission ordered Logitech, Doktorczyk, and Bolles to pay civil money penalties of $7,500,000.00, $50,000.00, and $25,000.00, respectively.

On February 27, 2018, the Commission established a Fair Fund pursuant to Section 308(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, so that the $7.575 million in civil money penalties paid by the Respondents could be distributed for the benefit of the injured investors (the "Logitech Fair Fund").  The assets of the Logitech Fair Fund are subject to the continuing jurisdiction and control of the Commission.

The Commission approved the first plan of distribution ("First Plan") on October 26, 2018, which resulted in the full compensation, including reasonable interest, of all eligible claimants who purchased shares of Logitech common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.

By Order dated September 20, 2021, the Commission approved the Second Plan of Distribution (the "Second Plan"), pursuant to which the Fund Administrator will distribute the Net Available Fair Fund to Eligible Claimants who purchased the Security during the Recovery Period. You can review the Second Plan, available at www.logitechfairfund.com for more information and for the definitions of the capitalized terms.

Who is Eligible for Compensation
