On or about March 1, 2000 Palm commenced an initial public offering of 23,000,000 of its shares of common stock at an offering price of $38.00 per share (the "Palm IPO"). In connection therewith, Palm filed a registration statement, which incorporated a prospectus (the "Prospectus"), with the SEC. The complaint alleges that the Prospectus was materially false and misleading because it failed to disclose, among other things, that: (i) the Underwriter Defendants (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Robertson Stephens and Salomon Smith Barney) had solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain investors in exchange for which the Underwriter Defendants allocated to those investors material portions of the restricted number of Palm shares issued in connection with the Palm IPO; and (ii) the Underwriter Defendants had entered into agreements with customers whereby the Underwriter Defendants agreed to allocate Palm shares to those customers in the Palm IPO in exchange for which the customers agreed to purchase additional Palm shares in the aftermarket at pre-determined prices.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of class members and is represented by the law firm of Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP, who has significant experience and expertise prosecuting class actions on behalf of investors and shareholders.
