NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP ("Scott+Scott"), an international shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, reminds investors that class action lawsuits have been filed against Farfetch Limited ("Farfetch" or the "Company") (NYSE: FTCH) and certain of its officers and directors, alleging violations of federal securities laws. If you purchased Farfetch stock in the Company's September 2018 initial public offering ("IPO"), or between September 21, 2018 and August 8, 2019, you are encouraged to contact Scott+Scott attorney Joe Pettigrew at (844) 818-6982 for more information. The lead plaintiff deadline is November 18, 2019.
The lawsuits allege that Defendants misled investors by failing to disclose material facts about Farfetch's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically: (1) the Company's core business was vulnerable to pricing volatility and heavy promotions of luxury goods; (2) the Company would refuse to reduce merchandise prices to match the rest of the market; (3) this sub-optimal pricing strategy rendered the Company's platform highly susceptible to underpricing by competitors; and (4) as a result, the Company's past and projected Platform gross merchandise value ("GMV") rates were foreseeably unsustainable. On August 8, 2019, Farfetch announced second quarter results, including a net loss of $86.9 million for the second quarter of 2019, a 406.9% increase over the prior year period, reduced Platform GMV guidance, and the resignation of its Chief Operating Officer, effective in 2020.
On this news, the Company's share price fell over 44%, from a close price of $18.25 per share on August 8, 2019, to close at $10.13 per share on August 9, 2019.
