Meta Platforms, Inc. (FB) Securities Fraud Class Action:
The lawsuit focuses on Meta's and senior management's false assurances about the sustainability of the company's user growth, user activity tracking, and ad targeting ability in light of Apple's recently improved iOS privacy features.
Specifically, the complaint alleges that Defendants misrepresented and concealed that: (1) Apple's iOS privacy changes were having a material impact on Meta's ability to provide the kind of ad targeting that its customers wanted and, as a result, ad revenues were dropping precipitously; (2) Meta's mitigation measures were either not properly implemented or ineffective; (3) measurement of ads was not accurate as mitigation measures were failing; and, (4) Meta did not have a plan to properly address the impact of iOS privacy changes.
On Feb. 2, 2022, the true impact of Apple's iOS privacy changes became apparent when the company reported dismal Q4 2021 financial results and gave disappointing guidance for 2022. Defendants blamed the poor results and guidance on headwinds to targeted advertising revenues as a result of Apple's iOS improved privacy features. In addition, Defendants said iOS privacy headwind would negatively impact the company's 2022 revenues by $10 billion.
This news sent the price of Meta shares plummeting 26% on Feb. 3, 2022, wiping out more than $230 billion in shareholder value.
"We're focused on investors' losses and proving Meta and its management misrepresented the severe negative impacts of iOS privacy changes on the company's business," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
