SUMMARY OF CASE:
Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (“Bed Bath & Beyond” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BBBY) and other defendants related to alleged violations of federal securities laws. If you purchased Bed Bath & Beyond securities between October 2, 2019 and February 11, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”), you are encouraged to contact Scott+Scott attorney Rhiana Swartz for additional information at (844) 818-6980 or email@example.com.
Bed Bath & Beyond is a chain of domestic merchandise retail stores.
The lawsuit alleges that the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company lacked sufficient inventory to support holiday sales; (2) the Company’s internal inventory controls were ineffective; and (3) as a result, the Company was likely to experience reduced sales.
On January 8, 2020, Bed Bath & Beyond withdrew its guidance for fiscal year 2019, purportedly due to pressures on sales and profitability, as well as a new strategic plan for the Company’s operations.
Following this news, the Company’s share price fell $3.20, or over 19%, to close at $13.45 per share on January 9, 2020.
Then, on February 11, 2020, Bed Bath & Beyond issued a press release disclosing “a 5.4% decline in comparable sales driven primarily by store traffic declines combined with inventory management issues,” including that “inventory within certain key categories in the Bed Bath & Beyond assortment was too low or out-of-stock during the period.”
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $3.06 per share, or over 20%, to close at $11.79 per share on February 12, 2020.
