The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona on behalf of shareholders of Leslie's, Inc. who purchased common stock between February 5, 2021 and July 13, 2023.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company’s growth was caused by customers over purchasing products to stockpile in case of a chemical shortage; (2) such sales inflated revenues and earnings and were not indicative of durable and sustainable demand or financial growth; (3) the Company took advantage of chemical shortages by urging customers to stock up on the products because Leslie’s could not “guarantee availability” of chemicals in the future; and (4) any slowdown in sales was not a normalization of past seasonality, but was due to the prior excess stockpiling. As a result, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s financial guidance, business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
