Investigation of Match Group Inc

 Match Group, Inc. (MTCH) Accused of Deceptive Business Practices

According to the complaint, in August 2019, Match Group, Inc (MTCH) touted an increase in subscribers in its second-quarter 2019 financial results and reaffirmed these results in subsequent press releases. In reference to its potential risk factors, Match Group acknowledged that its “ability to attract and retain users through cost-effective marketing efforts” was necessary for the Company to remain profitable. However, Match Group failed to disclose that some of its marketing practices relied on deceiving its consumers through the use of artificial love interest ads to promote buying or upgrading subscriptions. Then, on September 25, 2019, the Federal Trade Commission announced that it was suing for its deceptive ads as well as its failure to resolve disputed charges and intentionally complicating its subscription cancellation process. On this news, Match Group’s share price fell 2% to close at $71.44 per share, a 22% decline from its class period high of $91.77.
