Investigation

Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Meta Platforms, Inc. (f/k/a Facebook, Inc.) ("Meta" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FB). Investors who purchased Meta Scientific securities are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation.

 

The investigation concerns whether Meta and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws.

 

In June 2020, Apple Inc. (“Apple”) announced significant changes to the iOS operating software that runs iPhones (and iPads).  These changes would essentially cut off Meta’s Facebook platform and its sister services from almost all the tracking and targeting abilities and information necessary to sell targeted ads as they had done for many years.  Then, on February 2, 2022, Meta released weak Q4 2021 financial results and provided disappointing 2022 revenue guidance.  During the related earnings call, the Company disclosed that its mitigation efforts in fact had not rendered the effects of the iOS changes “manageable.”  Instead, Meta’s advertising business would suffer a shattering $10 billion revenue hit from the iOS privacy changes.  Meta also attributed its weak results and guidance on the slowing user growth due to competition from TikTok.  Following these admissions, Meta’s stock price fell $85.24 per share, or 26.39%, to close at $237.76 per share on February 3, 2022.
