About the Lawsuit
Facebook and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On July 25, 2018, the Company disclosed, after market, its 2Q2018 results including both revenue and active user counts below market expectations. Further, the Company anticipated slow revenue growth and falling margins and that it "expect[s] currency to be a slight headwind in the second half versus the tailwinds we have experienced over the last several quarters" and its "plan to grow and promote certain engaging experiences like Stories that currently have lower levels of monetization."
On this news, the price of Facebook's shares plummeted 18.96%.
