The filed complaint  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 large scale online wholesale was reasonably likely to lead to pricing volatility and heavy promotions of luxury goods;
     
  • that the Company’s core business was vulnerable to such pricing pressures;
     
  • that the Company would aggressively pursue acquisitions to remain profitable; and
     
  • that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.


In September  2018, the Company held launched its IPO in which it sold approximately 50.88 million shares of Class A common stock at a price of $20.00 per share.

On August 8, 2019, Farfetch reported a larger-than-expected loss of $89.6million for second quarter  of fiscal year 2019. The Company also announced a $675 million acquisition of New Guards Group and that its Chief Operating Officer had resigned.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $8.12, or over 44%, to close at $10.13 per share on August 9, 2019, and has subsequently traded as low as $8.82 per share on September 3, 2019.
