What is this all about?

After the market closed on October 18, 2022, Seeking Alpha published an article on a pending lawsuit against healthcare apparel company, FIGS, Inc., in which plaintiff’s counsel stated:

“As I said in court today, our evidence will show during this trial that FIGS founders Heather Hasson and Trina Spear advertised that they invented a proprietary chemical to make their scrubs anti-microbial, kill bacteria immediately on contact, and repel liquid – even though they never did so, and knew it was false…They continued to do this even in the face of internal, expert, and consumer pushback. FIGS will not provide any scientific evidence to support their claims or the breakdown of their supposed chemical treatment for scrubs."

Previously on September 7, 2022, Spruce Point Capital Management issued a short report on FIGS with allegations including: a history of misstating financial and business metrics going back prior to the company’s May 2021 IPO, overstating total addressable market, and its founders “exaggerating their professional work history.”

Shares of FIGS, Inc. stock dropped more than 10% in intraday trading on October 19, 2022.
