The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased iRobot common stock between November 21, 2016 and October 22, 2019 (the "Class Period"). The case, Miramar Firefighters Pension Fund v. iRobot Corporation et al., No. 19-cv-09837 was filed on October 24, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Jed S. Rakoff.
Throughout the Class Period, iRobot reported explosive, double-digit revenue growth, which it attributed to increasing demand for its Roomba products, expanded gross margin due to distributor acquisitions, greater brand awareness and technological innovation. The complaint alleges that iRobot was engaging in channel-stuffing in order to inflate its sales and revenues figures, and had acquired two of its largest distributors in order to facilitate and conceal this deceptive practice. As a result of these misrepresentations, iRobot shares traded at artificially inflated prices throughout the Class Period.
In a series of disclosures between April 23, 2019 and October 22, 2019, iRobot continuously lowered its revenue guidance while it increased its reported days in inventory figure. As these disclosures became public, iRobot's share price fell from $130.57 per share on April 23, 2019 to a closing price of $49.06 on October 23, 2019—a drop of over 60%.
