The Commission stated: "From the second quarter of fiscal 2013 through the second quarter of fiscal 2015 . . . Defendants understated the allowance for doubtful accounts and overstated income on Conn's financial statements. These errors resulted from: (1) Conn's use of a model to forecast its allowance for doubtful accounts that included management bias; and (2) the negligent application of that model by Conn's management, including Poppe, then the Chief Operating Officer of Conn's."
