INVESTOR ALERT: Kirby McInerney LLP Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action Lawsuit Against Tilray, Inc.

March 10, 2020 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 9, 2020--

The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of those who acquired Tilray, Inc. (“Tilray” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TLRY ) securities during the period from January 15, 2019 through March 2, 2020. Investors have until May 5, 2020 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that the Company failed to disclose that: (i) the purported advantages of the marketing and revenue sharing agreement with Authentic Brands Group (“ABG”) announced by Tilray on January 15, 2019 (the “ABG Agreement”) were significantly overstated; and (ii) the underperformance of the ABG Agreement would foreseeably have a significant impact on the Company’s financial results.

On March 2, 2020, Tilray reported disappointing financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019 and announced that “the Company recorded non-cash charges of $112.1 million related to impairment of the Authentic Brands Group LLC (‘ABG’) agreement as well as $68.6 million in inventory reserves.” On this news, Tilray’s shares fell $2.33, or 15.2%, to close at $13.02 per share on March 3, 2020.
