According to the law firm press release, Trivago N.V. provides online hotel search platform. The Company, through its platform, offers price information, reviews, photos, booking, and other travel services. Trivago serves customers worldwide and is a subsidiary of Expedia, Inc.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company engaged in deceptive sales practices; (ii) such practices were nearly certain to bring Trivago under enhanced regulatory scrutiny; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Trivago’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On October 27, 2017, the U.K.’s Competition and Markets Authority (“CMA”) announced that it was investigating the manner in which Trivago displays information to customers. Specifically, the CMA cited concerns about the clarity, accuracy and presentation of information on sites, which could mislead customers. The CMA said it would examine how hotels were ranked, whether results were influenced by how much commission a hotel pays over the customer’s requirements, the use of “pressure selling,” and hidden charges.

On this news, Trivago’s ADRs fell $0.36, or 4.54%, to close at $7.57 on October 27, 2017.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
