According to the Complaint, Fitbit claims to be a technology company focused on health-related devices. The
Company’s products purportedly include wearable devices—health and fitness trackers and smartwatches—that enable users to view data about their daily activity, exercise, and sleep, in real-time.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, 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, the Complaint alleges that the Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that the Company was struggling to transition its mission and differentiate itself from Apple Inc. and other competitors; (2) that, as such, the Company was experiencing increased competition; (3) that, as a result, demand and sell-through for the Company’s existing and new products were being negatively impacted; (4) that, as a result, the Company’s sales and financial results were weakening, and growth was slowing; (5) that the Company’s financial guidance was overstated; and (6) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements during the Class Period about Fitbit’s business, operations, financial results and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
