About the Lawsuit
Weight Watchers and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On February 26, 2019, the Company disclosed that its quarterly subscriber count had decreased to 3.9M subscribers with enrollment continuing to decline during FY2019; its FY2019 revenue target was downgraded to $1.4 billion, much less than the nearly $1.7 billion it had led the market to expect; and EPS had decreased to $1.25-$1.50, significantly lower than market expectations of $3.36.
On this news, the price of Weight Watchers’ shares plummeted.
The case is Potts v. Weight Watchers Int’l, Inc., 19-cv-2005.
