INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Momo Inc. Investors (MOMO)

May 16, 2019

BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Momo Inc. (“Momo” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MOMO ) securities between April 21, 2015 and April 29, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Momo investors have until July 15, 2019 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Momo investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On April 29, 2019, the Company announced that its Tantan social and dating mobile app had been removed from certain mobile phone app stores at the direction of Chinese authorities.

On this news, shares of Momo fell $2.51, or nearly 7%, to close at $34.36 on April 29, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

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: (1) Momo’s compliance procedures and controls were inadequate to prevent illicit financial reporting activity; (2) Momo’s social and dating app, Tantan, was materially noncompliant with Chinese law and/or regulations; (3) Tantan was consequently at an increased risk of being removed from Chinese app stores at the direction of Chinese governmental authorities; and (4) as a result, Momo’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of Momo have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to  howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
