According to the lawsuit, the Shelf Registration Statements of the SPOs featured false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Contrary to the Shelf Registration Statement’s claim that the Company had "three thriving, independent brands with significant global growth potential," the Tim Hortons brand was not positioned for growth; (2) the Tims Rewards and its significant discounting was not increasing profitability as evidenced by weekly sales data because, as would later be admitted, the program could not be supported by existing customer traffic and instead negatively affected sales; (3) product offerings were not driving growth or expanding the Company’s customer base and as a result, as the Company would later admit, the Company’s product offerings resulted in a gap in sales of its sandwiches and wraps; (4) despite its purported "steps to address this part of the menu," the Company was reporting weak year-over-year sales comparisons based on its product offerings and was unable to compete effectively; (5) the discounting associated with Tims Rewards was not sustainable, as customer traffic was not offsetting the program’s discounts; (6) the Company was not realizing the purported benefit of the loyalty program as evidenced by weekly sales reports; (7) the Company’s product offerings were similarly not increasing customer traffic, especially as compared to its competitors; and (8) as a result of the negative effect on Tim Horton’s sales, the Company was not "maintain[ing] its competitive position." When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
