CASE ALLEGATIONS: Farfetch, together with its subsidiaries, operates a global platform for the luxury fashion industry.
The Farfetch class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Farfetch was experiencing a significant slowdown in growth in the United States and China; (ii) Farfetch also faced onboarding challenges impacting the launch of its Reebok International Limited partnership; (iii) Farfetch downplayed challenges it faced with respect to, and/or overstated its ability to manage, its supply chain and inventory; (iv) all of the above was having a significant negative impact on Farfetch’s revenue and gross merchandise value (“GMV”) growth; and (v) as a result, Farfetch was unlikely to meet market expectations for its second quarter 2023 financial results or its own fiscal year 2023 revenue guidance.
The Farfetch class action lawsuit further alleges that on August 17, 2023, Farfetch reported second quarter 2023 revenue of approximately $572 million, significantly less than the market consensus of $650.71 million. According to the complaint, Farfetch also issued a fiscal year 2023 revenue forecast of approximately $2.5 billion, compared to the average analyst estimate of $2.8 billion and Farfetch’s prior fiscal year 2023 revenue forecast of $2.9 billion. Farfetch further disclosed that significant slowdowns in the United States and China, onboarding challenges affecting the launch of the Reebok partnership, and issues with inventory and shipping had negatively impacted Farfetch’s revenue and GMV for the quarter, the complaint further alleges. The Farfetch class action lawsuit alleges that following these developments, the price of Farfetch stock declined more than 45%.
