The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the
Class Period, Lexmark made materially false and/or misleading
statements, and/or failed to disclose, that (1) end-user demand and
growth for the Company's supplies business was deteriorating; (2)
pricing increases were the primary driver of supplies revenue growth,
not end-user demand; (3) customers in the supplies channel reacted by
buying ahead of anticipated pricing increases; (4) and that as a result,
there were excessive inventory levels at its European wholesale

On July 21, 2015, Lexmark reported poor results for its second quarter
ending June 30, 2015, and lowered its 2015 sales guidance. The Company
revealed its supplies growth was not attributable to end-user demand but
rather the result of its European customers buying ahead of customary
price increases which produced excessive inventory.

On this news, shares of Lexmark dropped in value considerably, thereby
damaging investors.

If you purchased shares of Lexmark during the Class Period you may move
the Court no later than September 19, 2017 to ask the Court
to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements.
To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time;
you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an
absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action,
or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights
or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G.
