Lauder Companies Inc. (EL) Failed Guidance Case

S.D. New York
Court
1:23-cv-10669
Case number
18 Aug 2022
Class period Start
02 May 2023
Class period End
  • In May 2023, Estée Lauder announced weak sales and cut its outlook contrary to previous guidance, again.
  • On this news, $EL fell by 17%, losing $9.8B+ of shareholder value.
  • The first investor already filed the initial claim over misleading in New York court.
On May 3, 2023, Estée Lauder announced weaker sales and profit for the year than previously estimated and cut its outlook for a third consecutive time.

Management attributed the further reduction in guidance to its Asia travel retail business, which continued to be pressured by the slower-than-anticipated recovery from the COVID pandemic.

On this news, $EL fell by 17% and lost over $9.8 billion of its market capitalization, seriously damaging shareholders.

Previously, Estée forecasted net sales to increase between 3% and 5% versus the prior-year period, reported diluted net earnings per common share are projected to be between $7.11 and $7.33, and adjusted diluted earnings per common share are expected to increase between 5% and 7% on a constant currency basis.

Considering all the representations, Investors have reasons to suspect that Estée Lauder misguided them by providing unrealistic forecasts. One of the affected investors has already filed the initial claim in NY court.
