About the Lawsuit

Rayonier and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

Since 2013, despite statements by the Company to the contrary, Rayonier had been experiencing ongoing difficulties with one of its top customers, Eastman Chemical Company (“Eastman”), regarding competitive pricing levels and certain terms of the contract between the companies.  Finally, on August 19, 2015, Rayonier revealed the extent of the protracted dispute with Eastman, including that it had filed suit against it the prior week.

On this news, the price of Rayonier shares plummeted 44% to close at $7.62 on extremely heavy trading volume.
