WAYFAIR CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT: BERNSTEIN LIEBHARD LLP ANNOUNCES THAT A SECURITIES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT HAS BEEN FILED AGAINST WAYFAIR INC. – W
January 14, 2019.
New York, New York—Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities of Wayfair Inc. (“Wayfair” or the “Company”) (NYSE: W) between August 2, 2018 and October 31, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to recover Wayfair shareholders’ investment losses.
According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Wayfair had been experiencing significantly diminished demand for its online product offerings and had significantly increased advertising spending to grow sales. As a result of Defendants’ false statements and/or omissions, the price of Wayfair stock was artificially inflated to more than $149 per share during the Class Period. Meanwhile, with the price of Wayfair common stock artificially inflated, certain of its senior executives and directors cashed in, selling more than $87.75 million worth of their personally held shares.
Then, on November 1, 2018, Wayfair announced its third quarter 2018 financial results. The Company reported a massive $151.7 million GAAP net loss for the quarter, or $(1.69) per share, compared with a GAAP loss of $76.4 million, or $(0.88) per share, for the third quarter of 2017. In reality, advertising expenses had skyrocketed in the third quarter of 2018 to more than $202.5 million, an increase of 43%.
On this news, Wayfair stock fell $14.13 per share, or over 12%, from its previous closing price to close at $96.16 per share on November 1, 2018, damaging investors.
