LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the October 16, 2017 deadline in the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of investors that purchased the common stock of Blue Apron Holdings, Inc. (“Blue Apron” or the “Company”) (NYSE: APRN) pursuant to the Registration Statement issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”). Blue Apron investors have until October 16, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion. To obtain information or participate in the class action, please visit the Blue Apron case page on our website at www.glancylaw.com/case/blue-apron-holdings-inc.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that Blue Apron violated the Securities Act because the Registration Statement failed to disclose that: (1) rather than continuing to significantly increase spending on advertising, Blue Apron had already decided to significantly reduce spending on advertising in Q2 2017, which would hurt sales and profit margins in future quarters; (2) Blue Apron was already experiencing adverse on-time in-full rates, meaning orders were not arriving on time or with all the ingredients needed, which was hurting customer retention; and (3) the Company ran into delays in Q2 2017 with its new factory in Linden, New Jersey.
Following the IPO, Blue Apron’s stock price fell to lows of $5 per share, a decline of 50% from the IPO price.
