ATLANTA, GA – – (Globe Newswire – March 27, 2023) – – Holzer & Holzer, LLC informs investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.

The lawsuit alleges Stanley made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, including (i) rising interest rates, inflation, and trends in returning to work away from home were quickly eroding then-heightened demand for Stanley’s tools and outdoor products; (ii) the heightened, extraordinary demand Stanley enjoyed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 into 2022 was returning to 2019 pre-pandemic levels; (iii) Stanley’s operations were already showing signs of slowing demand; (iv) as a result of reorganization, share repurchasing, and dividend growth, Stanley lacked the cash to react with agility to changes in demand; and (v) as a result of Stanley’s inability to react to a sharp decline in demand, the Company’s results and metrics, particularly sales volume, were severely negatively impacted.
