The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Snap made materially false and misleading statements about its reported user growth. On March 3, 2017, the Company completed its IPO, issuing 200 million shares of stock. On May 10, 2017, after the market closed, Snap released its first earnings report as a public company. The report revealed disappointing user growth for the Company’s messaging platform and a quarterly loss of $2.2 billion. The user growth was the slowest year-to-year user growth rate in at least two years. Following this news, Snap’s stock price dropped 21.45%, which caused investors harm. On May 16, 2017, Anthony Pompliano, a former employee, filed a federal lawsuit against Snap alleging that the Company terminated his employment because he raised questions about the false growth metrics being represented to the public in order to inflate Snap’s valuation prior to the IPO. Mr. Pompliano is also seeking whistleblower protection against retaliation by the Company.
