NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), a national securities and consumer rights litigation firm, is notifying investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Tilray, Inc. (“Tilray” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TLRY) and other defendants related to alleged violations of federal securities laws.

Tilray is based in Toronto, Canada. The Company engages in the research, cultivation, processing, and distribution of medical cannabis. On January 15, 2019, the day the Class Period begins, Tilray announced that it had entered into a long-term revenue sharing agreement with Authentic Brands Group (“ABG”) to market and distribute a portfolio of consumer cannabis products.
According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period, Tilray made false and/or misleading statements about the Company’s business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, (i) the purported advantages of the ABG Agreement were significantly overstated; and (ii) the underperformance of the ABG Agreement would foreseeably have a significant impact on the Company’s financial results.
On March 2, 2020, Tilray issued a press release announcing the Company’s financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019. Among other results, Tilray reported a net loss for the year of $321.2 million, or $3.20 per share, compared to $67.7 million, or $0.82 per share, for 2018. In addition, Tilray disclosed that “the Company recorded non-cash charges of $112.1 million related to impairment of the [ABG] agreement as well as $68.6 million in inventory reserves.”
On this news, Tilray’s stock price fell $2.33 per share – 15.18% – to close at $13.02 per share on March 3, 2020.
