Explanation:
"Taking into account the foreseeable class action suits and calculating in multiples of lost profits, this..." (or something similar, please bear with me - I don't have any dictionaries with me at the moment)...

Sammelklagen = class action suits
entgangener Gewinn = lost profits OR loss of profit (the profit the other party would have made, had the 'problem' not occurred). :-)
