On July 27, 2018, Helios and Matheson disclosed that a MoviePass service interruption occurred on July 26, 2018 because the Company was unable to make required payments to its merchant and fulfillment processors. On this news, Helios and Mathesons stock price fell more than 70%, to close at $2.00 per share on July 27, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects throughout the Class Period. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Defendants failed to disclose that: (1) Helios and Matheson was touting MoviePass valuation and path to profitability; (2) MoviePass business model was not sustainable; (3) consequently, Helios and Matheson would run out of cash; (4) defendants actions were only reducing shareholder value; and (5) as a result, defendants statements about Helios and Mathesons business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
If you purchased shares of Helios during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than October 1, 2018 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
