NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP (http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/jumia/) today announced that a class action has been commenced on behalf of purchasers of Jumia Technologies AG (NYSE:JMIA) American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) during the period between April 12, 2019 and May 9, 2019 (the “Class Period”). This action was filed in the Southern District of New York and is captioned Strugala v. Jumia Technologies AG, et al., No. 19-cv-4397.
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Jumia ADSs during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from today. If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Samuel H. Rudman or David A. Rosenfeld of Robbins Geller at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can view a copy of the complaint as filed at http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/jumia/.
The complaint charges Jumia and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Jumia operates a pan-African e-commerce platform.
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements about Jumia and its business. These statements are alleged to be materially false and misleading because they failed to disclose that: (a) Jumia had materially overstated its active customers and active merchants; (b) Jumia’s representations about its orders, order cancellations, undelivered orders and returned orders lacked a sufficient factual basis and materially overstated the Company’s sales; (c) Jumia failed to sufficiently disclose related party transactions; and (d) Jumia’s financial statements were presented in violation of applicable accounting standards.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Jumia ADSs during the Class Period (the “Class”). The plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which has extensive experience in prosecuting investor class actions including actions involving financial fraud.
