Funko is a pop culture consumer products company that sells a broad range of pop culture consumer products, featuring characters from a range of media and entertainment content, including movies, TV shows, video games, music and sports. Its products combine its proprietary brands and designs into properties it licenses from content providers.
The lawsuit claims that the Company’s Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with the IPO were materially misleading by failing to disclose known trends in the Company’s sales and inventory.
On November, 2 2017, Bloomberg published an article entitled “Funko Extends Playtime to Its Accounting,” stating, among other things, that “[p]rofits . . . are slowing,” “just $7 million, or 10 percent, of Funko’s $69 million increase in adjusted Ebitda . . . was from actual earnings growth,” and questioning the Company’s claim of “intellectual property worth $250 million” which the article author claimed was “odd for a company whose main products are based on others’ intellectual property.” On this news, Funko’s stock price closed at $7.07 per share, which was a decline of $4.93, or 41%, from the IPO price of $12.00 per share. On January 5, 2017, Funko’s stock price closed at $6.12, which was a decline of $5.88, or 49%, from the IPO price of $12.00 per share, thereby injuring investors.
