A copy of the complaint filed by Wohl & Fruchter LLP can be obtained at:
LifeLock is a self-proclaimed provider of proactive identity theft protection services that it provides to consumers and enterprises. In March 2010, LifeLock (and its Chairman and CEO, Todd Davis) entered into a settlement order (Settlement Order) with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) whereby LifeLock settled allegations by the FTC that certain of LifeLock’s advertising and marketing practices constituted deceptive acts or practices in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act). The Settlement Order enjoined LifeLock from deceptive advertising and marketing of its identity theft protection services, including making any misrepresentations of “the means, methods, procedures, effects, effectiveness, coverage, or scope of” its identity theft protection services.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the Company’s marketing and advertising practices violated applicable government rules and regulations, as well as the terms of the Settlement Order, during the Class Period, and that as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
In its 2013 Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 19, 2014, LifeLock disclosed that it had met with the FTC on January 17, 2014, regarding its compliance with the terms of the Settlement Order, after a whistleblower had discussed certain violations of the Settlement Order with the FTC.
On this news shares of LOCK fell $2.29 per share, or nearly 10%, over the course of four trading sessions, to close on February 25, 2014 at $20.00.
Subsequently, on March 17, 2014, LifeLock disclosed that it had received a request from the FTC for documents and information related to LifeLock's compliance with the Settlement Order. Since that time, LOCK shares have fallen further to close at $16.52/share on April 24, 2014.
