The complaint alleges that Netflix failed to inform investors that its May 2014 price increase for monthly streaming subscriptions could have a big, negative impact on subscriber growth that is consistent with its prior experiences. Instead, on July 21, 2014, Netflix informed the market that the price increase had a “minimal” and “nominal” impact on subscriber growth and that any adverse effect on revenue was “background noise” with “no noticeable effect in the business.”
On October 15, 2014, Netflix revealed that the impact on earnings was hugely negative and slashed its projected earnings by almost 50%. Netflix also stated in its letter to shareholders that “[Y]ear on year net additions in the US were down (1.3 million in Q3 2013 to 1 million in Q3 2014). As best we can tell, the primary cause is the slightly higher prices we now have compared to a year ago. Slightly higher prices result in slightly less growth, other things being equal, and this is manifested more clearly in higher adoption markets such as the US.” On this news, shares of Netflix fell more than 19% to close at $361.70 per share on October 16, 2014, damaging investors.
