A securities class action has been filed in the USDC – M.D.FL. against adidas AG (ADDYY, ADDDF) (“Adidas” or the “Company”) on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Adidas between May 3, 2018 through February 21, 2023.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose, among other things, that:
- In addition to other misconduct, Kanye West made anti-Semitic comments in front of Adidas staff, and even suggested naming an album after Adolf Hitler;
- Adidas was aware of his behavior, and failed to warn investors that it was aware of that behavior, and had considered ending the Partnership as a result of it;
- Adidas failed to take meaningful precautionary measures to limit negative financial exposure if the Partnership were to end as a result of West’s behavior;
- Adidas overstated the risk mitigation measures it took with regard to Yeezy shoes in the event that it terminated the Partnership;
- as a result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
