An Investor Files Federal Securities Fraud Class Action Complaint Against King Digital Entertainment plc

Robbins Arroyo LLP announced that an investor of King Digital Entertainment plc has filed a federal securities fraud class action complaint in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Francisco. The complaint alleges that the company and certain of its officers and directors violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1933 in connection with the company's March 26, 2014 initial public stock offering. Since the company's March 27, 2014 IPO, King Digital stock has dropped from $22.50 per share, to as low as $11.25 per share on October 14, 2014. According to the complaint, King Digital knew and failed to disclose certain material financial information in the company's registration statement issued in connection with the IPO. King Digital's registration statement highlighted the longevity of its Candy Crush game and the growth in monthly active users. In reality, a significant number of individuals paying to play Candy Crush Saga, which in the fourth quarter of 2013 accounted for 78% of the company's gross bookings and was thus the primary source of the company's revenue, were no longer playing the game. As a result of this decline in use, Candy Crush Saga became a weight on King Digital that hampered the company's financial results.
