LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Goldberg Law PC, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Shopify Inc. (“Shopify” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SHOP).
If you purchased or otherwise acquired Shopify shares, and would like more information about the investigation, we encourage you to contact Michael Goldberg or Brian Schall, of Goldberg Law PC, 1999 Avenue of the Stars, Suite 1100, Los Angeles, CA 90067, at 800-977-7401, to discuss your rights without cost to you.
The investigation focuses on whether Shopify and certain of its officers and/or directors violated federal securities laws. On October 4, 2017, Citron Research published a report characterizing the Company as “a completely illegal get-rich quick scheme.” The report alleged that Shopify inaccurately described its relationship with certain affiliates, stating, in part: “Shopify calls these affiliates ‘partners.’ We call them promoters selling business opportunities.” The report compared the Company’s business practices to those of Herbalife Ltd., a company that recently paid $200 million and agreed to an order “prohibit[ing] Herbalife from misrepresenting distributors’ potential or likely earnings” to settle Federal Trade Commission charges. Following this news, Shopify’s stock price dropped.
If you have any questions concerning your legal rights, please immediately contact Goldberg Law PC at 800-977-7401, or visit our website at http://www.Goldberglawpc.com, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
