The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of all those who purchased Under Armour securities between August 3, 2016 and November 1, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Patel v. Under Armour, Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-03209 was filed on November 6, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Richard D. Bennett.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/ore failing to disclose that: (1) Under Armour shifted sales from quarter to quarter to appear healthier, including to keep pace with their long-running year-over-year 20% net revenue growth; (2) the Company had been under investigation by and cooperating with the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission since at least July 2017; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
On November 3, 2019, The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission were investigating Under Armour’s accounting of revenue and related disclosures. The investigations concern whether the Company shifted sales from quarter to quarter to appear healthier. Though Under Armour had reported at least 20% year-over-year revenue growth for 26 straight quarters, the Company missed its sales targets in the final quarter of 2016 and has been struggling with weak sales and restructuring ever since.
On this news, the price of Under Armour Class A stock (UAA) fell from $21.14 per share on November 1, 2019 to $17.14 per share on November 4, 2019: a $4.00 or 18.92% drop. The price of Under Armour Class C stock (UA) fell $3.47, or 18.4%, to close at $15.44 on November 4, 2019.
