The company is trying to rescue itself and stay out of bankruptcy by shrinking. The chain said Wednesday it will lay off about 20% of corporate employees, close about 150 stores and cut several of its in-house home goods brands. The company also said it secured more than $500 million in financing to shore up its financial troubles. Arnal was named as a defendant in a class action lawsuit accusing him, Ryan Cohen and other large shareholders of participating in a scheme to artificially inflate the company’s stock price. The lawsuit was filed on August 23 in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit alleges that Arnal and others made misleading statements and omissions when communicating with investors about BBBY’s strategic plans and financial condition, and delayed disclosures about holding and selling their own shares. The lawsuit also alleges that interested parties shared false earnings numbers and plans by the company to spin off its “Buy Buy Baby” brand to fuel a stock-buying frenzy.
