On August 2, 2022, Match released its second quarter 2022 financial results, warning that it expected the growth of its largest and most important brand, Tinder, to slow in the second half of 2022 as the result of poor product execution, admitting that "Tinder did not deliver on its product roadmap for the first half of the year," forcing the Company to delay the launch of several initiatives and optimizations.
On this news, Match's stock price fell $13.47, or 17.6%, to close at $63.24 per share on August 3, 2022, thereby injuring invstors.
Then, on January 31, 2023, Match reported disappointing financial results for 2022, including total revenue that missed the Company's prior guidance. The Company attributed the shortfall to "weaker-than-expected product execution at Tinder, the effects of which became more pronounced as the year progressed."
On this news, Match's stock price fell $2.72, or 5%, to close at $51.41 per share on February 1, 2023, thereby injuring investors further.
The complaint filed in this class action 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, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) the Company was not effectively executing on Tinder's new product initiatives; (2) as a result, the Company was not on track to deliver Tinder's planned product initiatives in 2022; and (3) 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.
