BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Farfetch Limited (“Farfetch” or the “Company”) (NYSE: FTCH) securities between March 9, 2023 and August 17, 2023, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Farfetch investors have until December 19, 2023 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their Farfetch investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to email@example.com.
On August 17, 2023, Farfetch released its second quarter 2023 financial results, reporting revenue of approximately $572 million, missing the market consensus of $650.71 million. The Company also lowered its Full Year 2023 revenue forecast from $2.9 billion to $2.5 billion. The Company disclosed that significant slowdowns in growth in the US and China, onboarding challenges affecting the launch of its anticipated partnership with Reebok, and issues with shipping and inventory had negatively impacted revenue and gross merchandise value (“GMV”).
On this news, Farfetch’s stock price fell $2.15, or 45.2%, to close at $2.61 per share on August 18, 2023, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Farfetch was experiencing a significant slowdown in growth in the U.S. and China; (2) Farfetch also faced onboarding challenges impacting the launch of its Reebok partnership; (3) Farfetch downplayed challenges it faced with respect to, and/or overstated its ability to manage, its supply chain and inventory; (4) all the foregoing was having a significant negative impact on Farfetch’s revenue and GMV growth; (5) accordingly, Farfetch was unlikely to meet market expectations for its Q2 2023 financial results or its own FY 2023 revenue guidance; and (6) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
