In November 2020, Yatsen conducted its IPO, selling 58.75 million ADSs at $10.50 per ADS.
On August 26, 2021, during a second quarter 2021 analyst call, Yatsen disclosed that its cosmetic line, Perfect Diary, had been deteriorating, requiring the Company to “refocus.”
On this news, Yatsen’s stock fell $1.03, or 17.6%, to close at $4.81 per ADS on August 26, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
Then, on November 17, 2021, Yatsen released its third quarter 2021 financial results, revealing a significant decrease in gross sales from the Company’s cosmetics brands.
On this news, Yatsen’s stock fell $0.59, or 17.9%, to close at $2.70 per ADS on November 17, 2021.
On March 10, 2022, Yatsen released its fourth quarter and full year financial results for 2021, disclosing a decrease of 22.1% in net revenues and 17.2% in gross sales.
On this news, Yatsen’s stock fell $0.49, or 39.5%, to close at $0.75 per ADS on March 10, 2022, thereby injuring investors further.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period and in the Offering Documents, 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, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) cosmetic and skincare sales of Perfect Diary and Little Ondine products were substantially declining in the period leading up to (and including at the time of) the IPO, and continued to decline throughout 2021, and (2) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
