LOS ANGELES, May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Jumia Technologies AG (“Jumia” or “the Company”) (NYSE: JMIA) for violations of §§10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The investigation focuses on whether the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose information pertinent to investors. Citron Research published a report on May 9, 2019, focused on Jumia. Citron called the Company "most obvious fraud" it has seen in 18 years of publishing research. The report in particular notes "material discrepancies" between what was communicated in an investor presentation in October 2018, and what was presented to the SEC. Among the information revealed was that 41% of orders were returned, not delivered, or canceled. Based on this report, shares of Jumia fell steeply on the same day.
