This lawsuit is for anyone who acquired securities in National Vision Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYE) from May 13, 2021 through May 9, 2022.
The lawsuit alleges that the Company and certain of its executives violated federal law. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that, throughout the time period mentioned above, the Company misled investors regarding its financial condition. More specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the Company misled investors by failing to timely inform investors that the Company was significantly increasing its spending to retain optometrists post-pandemic and the associated negative profit margins.
On November 10, 2021, in connection with its third quarter 2021 financial results, National Vision tightened its fiscal 2021 sales outlook (but did not change its earnings guidance), indicating that the Company was suffering from a substantial deterioration in profit margins during fourth quarter 2021. On this news, the Company's stock price dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. Then, on May 9, 2022, National Vision issued its first quarter 2022 financial results, disclosing that the Company’s net revenues had decreased 1.2% to $527.7 million, its adjusted CSS had fallen 6.8%, net income had decreased 30.6% to $30.1 million, and its diluted EPS had decreased 28.2% to $0.34. The Company also adjusted its 2022 outlook, indicating that it was performance worse in terms of profits and earnings than before the pandemic. On this news, the Company's stock price again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume.
