About the Lawsuit
Vitamin Shoppe and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On March 1, 2017, Vitamin Shoppe announced that it expected to deliver “[f]ully diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.95 - $2.20” during fiscal year 2017. Subsequently, on May 10, 2017, the Company slashed FY17 guidance by more than 45% and then on August 9, 2017, revealed it was taking a goodwill impairment charge of $168 million and as a result, a GAAP loss per share of $6.73 in 2Q17.
On this news, the price of Vitamin Shoppe’s shares plummeted.
