The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants participated in a fraudulent scheme and course of business that operated as a fraud or deceit on purchasers of GoodRx common stock by disseminating materially false and misleading statements and/or concealing material adverse facts. The scheme: (1) deceived the investing public regarding GoodRx’s business, operations, services, competition, competitive market trends and present and future business prospects; (2) facilitated the Company’s September 2020 initial public offering (“IPO”); (3) created artificial demand for the GoodRx common shares sold in the IPO; (4) enabled the Company to receive $887 million in net proceeds from the sale of GoodRx common stock in the IPO; (5) enabled certain existing shareholders, including executive officers and Company employees, to collectively reap gross proceeds of more than $369 million from the sale of GoodRx common stock in the IPO; and (6) caused plaintiff and the Class to purchase GoodRx publicly traded common stock at artificially inflated prices.
On November 17, 2020, just weeks after GoodRx completed its IPO, Amazon announced two new pharmacy offerings, a Prime Rx plan and a discount card program, which, among other things, would compete directly with GoodRx’s platform. That same day, CNBC.com reported that Amazon Prime members would not have access to discounts of up to 80% on generic medications and up to 40% on brand-name prescriptions through its relationship with the Inside Rx savings program. This competitive pricing posed a severe threat to GoodRx’s business model.
On this news, GoodRx’s stock price fell $10.51 per share, or 23%, to $36.21 per share by market close on November 17, 2020.
