IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Khang & Khang LLP (the “Firm”) announces that it is investigating claims against Shopify Inc. (“Shopify” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SHOP) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws.
If you purchased shares of Shopify and want more information, please contact Joon M. Khang, Esquire, of Khang & Khang LLP, 4000 Barranca Parkway, Suite 250 Irvine, CA 92604, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
The investigation concerns 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. When this news was announced, shares of Shopify declined in value.
