BUMBLE’S ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
Bumble provides online dating and social networking platforms. Specifically, Bumble owns and operates websites and applications that offer subscription and credit-based dating products.
On September 7, 2021, Bumble filed a registration statement on a Form S-1 for Bumble’s secondary public stock offering (the “SPO”). On September 9, 2021, the SEC declared the registration statement effective, and on September 13, 2021, Bumble filed the final Prospectus for the SPO, which forms part of the registration statement (collectively, the “Registration Statement”). The SPO allowed controlling stockholder Blackstone Group Inc. to sell 20.7 million shares of Bumble Class A common stock at $54 per share, generating more than $1.1 billion in gross proceeds.
On November 10, 2021, Bumble announced its third quarter 2021 financial results and revealed that, rather than growing paying users, Bumble’s total paying user count had actually declined to 2.86 million, well below Bumble’s 2.9 million reported paying users as of June 30, 2021 as highlighted in the Registration Statement. The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement failed to disclose any problems plaguing Bumble’s dating apps or the slowdown in Bumble’s paying user growth.
As of the date the initial complaint was filed, Bumble Class A common stock traded below $27 per share, a decline of more than 50% from the SPO price.
