LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the upcoming January 3, 2023 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of FIGS, Inc. (“FIGS” or the “Company”) FIGS investors who purchased: (a) securities between May 27, 2021 and May 12, 2022, inclusive (the “Class Period”); and/or (b) stock pursuant and/or traceable to the Offering Documents issued in connection with the Company’s May 2021 initial public offering (“IPO”).

In May 2021, FIGS completed its IPO, selling approximately 34.3 million shares of Class A common stock for $22 per share.
On May 12, 2022, FIGS announced disappointing financial results, adjusting its expected sales, gross margins, and EBITDA due to supply chain issues. The Company also admitted that it had continued to rely on air freight instead of the less expensive option of overseas shipping, despite previous claims that air freight was transitory.
On this news, FIGS’s stock price fell $3.21, or 25%, to close at $9.64 per share on May 13, 2022, significantly below the IPO price, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants: (1) inflated the Company’s true ability to successfully secure repeat customers; (2) failed to disclose the Company’s increasing dependence on air freight; (3) inflated the expected net revenues, gross margin, and adjusted EBITDA margin for 2022; and (4) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired FIGS securities, you may move the Court no later than January 3, 2023 to request appointment as lead plaintiff in this putative class action lawsuit. To be a member of the class action you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the class action. If you wish to learn more about this class action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to the pending class action lawsuit, please contact Charles Linehan, Esquire, of GPM, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles, California 90067 at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our website at www.glancylaw.com.
