CASE ALLEGATIONS: FIGS is a direct-to-consumer healthcare apparel and lifestyle brand that primarily sells its products in the United States through FIGS’ digital platforms. Through its IPO, defendants issued to the public more than 30.3 million shares of Class A common stock at the price of $22 per share.
The FIGS class action lawsuit alleges that the offering documents and defendants throughout the Class Period claimed that due to FIGS’ access to significant customer data, it was able to maintain an efficient and steady supply chain. The truth was, however, that FIGS’ access to data did not allow it to mitigate supply chain problems through predictable sales. Instead, FIGS had to increasingly rely on air freight that costs materially more than the overseas shipping it was previously reliant on.
On May 12, 2022, FIGS announced disappointing results and slashed its expected sales, gross margin, and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) because of these “supply chain” issues. FIGS also admitted that not only did they continue to rely on air freight during the first quarter of 2022, but that “[f]or the rest of the year, we plan to significantly increase our use of airfreight to reduce our exposure to these unpredictable transit times.” On this news, FIGS’ stock price fell by approximately 25%, damaging investors.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired FIGS securities during the Class Period and/or stock pursuant and/or traceable to the offering documents issued in connection with FIGS’ IPO to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the FIGS class action lawsuit. A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the FIGS class action lawsuit. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the FIGS class action lawsuit. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the FIGS class action lawsuit.
