According to the complaint, during the class period Defendants misled investors by omitting to disclose that Weight Watchers was experiencing diminished subscriber demand attributable to the onslaught of new competing smartphone fitness apps, meal delivery services, and other tech advances that were driving down the Company’s new subscriber growth and subscriber retention rates.

On February 26, 2019, after the close of trading, Defendants announced disappointing financial results for the 2018 fourth quarter and fiscal year.  In addition, Defendants slashed revenue guidance for the Company’s 2019 fiscal year.

This news drove the price of Weight Watchers shares down $10.20, or about 34%, to close at $19.37 on February 27, 2019.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses, certain insider trading, and whether Defendants’ statements may have misled investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Whistleblowers:  Persons with non-public information regarding Weight Watchers should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program.  Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.  For more information, call Reed Kathrein at 510-725-3000 or email WTW@hbsslaw.com.
