“Viewing the evidence most favorably to [plaintiff], the nondisclosure of
[defendant]’s receipt of maximum discounts to which it was not entitled certainly
could be construed as a ‘secret’ allowance.” (Diesel Elec. Sales & Serv., Inc. v.
Marco Marine San Diego (1993) 16 Cal.App.4th 202, 212 [20 Cal.Rptr.2d 62].)
