The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Fitbit securities between August 2, 2016 and January 30, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Lopes v. Fitbit, Inc. et al, No. 18-cv-06665 was filed on November 1, 2018 and has been assigned to Judge Jon Steven Tigar.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) the company was struggling to differentiate itself from Apple Inc. and other competitors; (2) the Company was experiencing increased competition; (3) demand and sell-through for the Company’s existing and new products were being negatively impacted; (4) the Company’s sales and financial results were weakening, and growth was slowing; and (5) the Company’s financial guidance was overstated.

On January 30, 2017, Fitbit issued a press release announcing preliminary Q4 2016 financial results. Therein, Fitbit disclosed that it expected Q4 2016 revenue to be in the range of $572 million to $580 million, rather than its previously announced guidance range of $725 million to $750 million. Fitbit also disclosed expected annual revenue growth of approximately 17%, rather than the previously-announced forecast of 25% to 26%. Fitbit also indicated that it expected its non-GAAP fourth quarter gross margin to be “materially below its previously issued 46% guidance.”

On this news, Fitbit’s share price fell from $7.21 per share on January 27, 2017 to a closing price of $6.06 on January 30, 2017—a $1.15 or a 15.95% drop.
