LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the February 27, 2017 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of a class (the “Class”) of investors who purchased PayPal Holdings, Inc. (“PayPal” or the “Company”). PayPal investors have until February 27, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
On April 28, 2016, post-market, PayPal announced that it had received a civil investigative demand on March 28, 2016 from the Federal Trade Commission as part of an investigation to determine whether the Company, through its Venmo service, has engaged in deceptive or unfair practices in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act.
On this news, PayPal stock fell $0.89 per share to close at $39.18 on April 29, 2016, thereby injuring investors.
The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that during the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about its business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: 1) PayPal's Venmo service was allegedly participating in unfair trade practices; 2) the announcement of the above allegations was likely to affect PayPal's profit on its Venmo service and/or 3) PayPal's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
