A Securities Class Action Has Been Filed Against Eventbrite; Block & Leviton LLP Encourages Shareholders to Contact the Firm

May 3, 2019

BOSTON, May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Block & Leviton LLP ( www.blockesq.com ), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, informs investors that there has been a class action lawsuit filed against Eventbrite, Inc. (“Eventbrite” or the “Company”) (“NYSE: EB”) and certain of its officers alleging violations of the federal securities laws. Shareholders are encouraged to contact Block & Leviton LLP to learn more.

The complaint that was filed in the Northern District of California, and captioned Gomes v. Eventbrite, Inc. et al., 5:19-cv-02019, asserts that the Company misled investors by failing to disclose that the Company’s migration of customers from Ticketfly to Eventbrite was progressing slower than expected such that the Company’s revenue and growth would be negatively impacted. The Hon. Edward J. Davila is the judge assigned to the case.

On March 7, 2019, post-market, when Eventbrite indicated that its growth rate would be negatively impacted its stock price fell from $32.42 per share on March 7, 2019 to $24.46 per share on March 8, 2019.

Then, on May 1, 2019, the Company’s stock price fell 30% post-market following a weak first quarter earnings report that showed widening losses, lower than expected second-quarter guidance and growth issues tied to their continued focus on integrating.

On May 2, 2019, Eventbrite’s stock fell another 30%.
