LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lundin Law PC, a shareholder rights firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Netflix, Inc. (“Netflix” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NFLX). Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Netflix shares between July 22, 2014, and October 15, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”), are encouraged to contact the firm in advance of the May 1, 2017 lead plaintiff deadline.
No class has been certified in the above action. Until a class is certified, you are not considered represented by an attorney. You may also choose to do nothing and be an absent class member.
The Complaint alleges Netflix explained to investors that the price increase for its monthly subscription service had a “minimal” and “nominal” effect on subscriber growth and that any negative effect on revenue was “background noise” with “no noticeable effect in the business.”
On October 15, 2014, Netflix announced to investors 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.”
When this news was released to the public, the value of Netflix stock dropped, causing investors harm.
Lundin Law PC was founded by Brian Lundin, a securities litigator based in Los Angeles dedicated to upholding shareholders’ rights.
