New York, New York — Bernstein Liebhard, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased or acquired the securities of Hepsiburada (D-MARKET Elektronik Hizmetler ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi a/k/a D-MARKET Electronic Services & Trading) (“Hepsiburada” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HEPS) from July 1, 2021 through August 26, 2021 (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California alleges violations of the Securities Act of 1934.
According to the complaint, Hepsiburada and the Registration Statement was materially false and misleading and omitted to state: (1) that Hepsiburada suffered a sharp deceleration in operational and sales growth during second quarter 2021; (2) that, as a result, the Company initiated certain actions to fortify its competitive position, including investing in electronics and high frequency categories and discounting certain categories; (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Hepsiburada’s revenue and GMV had declined during second quarter 2021; and (4) 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.
On July 1, 2021, Hepsiburada completed its IPO, selling approximately 62 million shares of common stock for $1200 per share.
On August 26, 2021, Hepsiburada announced its second quarter 2021 financial results —the quarter which had ended before the IPO closed—and reported that revenue grew 5.2%, reflecting “the shift in GMV mix in favor of Marketplace.” The Company also reported that EBITDA was “negative TRY 188.6 million in Q2 2021 compared to positive TRY 71.1 million in Q2 2020 . . . due to lower gross contribution driven primarily by investments to fortify our position in electronics, investments to penetrate in high frequency categories as well as higher customer demand for low margin products.”
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $3.05, or 25%, to close at $8.97 per share on August 26, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
By the commencement of this action, the Company’s shares were trading as low as $5.30, a nearly 56% decline from the $12.00 per share IPO price, damaging investors.
