According to the complaint, Defendants misled investors in part by concealing (1) Jumia materially overstated its active customers and active merchants, and (2) Jumia overstated its sales.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses, whether the matters raised by Citron on May 9, 2019 are correct, and the extent to which investors may have been misled,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
