CASE ALLEGATIONS: Allbirds is a footwear and apparel company.
The Allbirds class action lawsuit alleges that the IPO’s Registration Statement and defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Allbirds was overemphasizing products that extended beyond Allbirds’ core offerings; (ii) Allbirds’ non-core products had a narrower appeal and were not resonating with customers as well as Allbirds’ core products; (iii) Allbirds was underinvesting in its core consumers’ favorite products to push Allbirds’ newer products with narrower appeal; and (iv) underinvesting in Allbirds’ core products was negatively impacting Allbirds’ sales.
On March 9, 2023, Allbirds announced disappointing fourth quarter 2022 financial results and explained that its poor financial results were driven in part by overemphasis on “products that extended beyond [Allbirds’] core DNA.” Allbirds further disclosed that “some products and colors have had narrower appeal than [Allbirds] expected” and “[b]ecause [Allbirds was] spending significant time and resources on these new products that did not resonate well, [Allbirds] underinvested in [its] core consumers’ favorite products.” Allbirds also announced that its Chief Financial Officer, Michael Bufano, was stepping down. On this news, the price of Allbirds’ stock fell more than 47%, damaging investors.
As of when the Allbirds class action lawsuit was filed, Allbirds’ stock continued to trade below the $15.00 per share IPO price.
