According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Nissan understated its expenses by hiding half of former Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn’s compensation. By not reporting this compensation, the Company was able to overstate profits, and avoid investor scrutiny of Ghosn’s extremely large compensation package. Ghosn’s compensation was underreported over the last decade by an amount estimated at almost $90 million USD. Nissan also failed to inform investors about the poor internal controls that allowed the deceptive compensation practices to be put in place. At the same time, it ignored the advice of outside auditors who advised the Company to put proper controls in place. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Nissan, investors suffered damages.
