About the Lawsuit
Groupon and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On February 18, 2020, the Company disclosed disappointing financial results including a 23% decline in sales year-over-year, at $612.3 million, adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2019 of $227.2 million, well below its November 2019 forecast of $270 million, and a “transformational plan to exit Goods” in North America by the third quarter and globally by year-end.
On this news, the price of Groupon’s shares plummeted $1.35/share, or over 44%, to close at $1.70/share on February 19, 2020, on unusually heavy trading volume.
The case is Lazar Macovski, et al. v. Groupon, Inc., et al., 20-cv-02581.
