Then, on June 17, 2019, the United States Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") issued a closing letter to Canada Goose Holdings Inc's legal counsel. The FTC Closing Letter stated that the FTC had investigated Canada Goose's advertising practices for possible violations of the Federal Trade Commission Act ("FTC Act"), citing "concern[s] that Canada Goose may have made false or misleading representations about the treatment of geese whose down is used in Canada Goose's apparel." The FTC further stated that it had not recommended enforcement action against Canada Goose because the Company had "remov[ed] the advertising claims at issue from the marketplace and clarify[ied] its business practices in marketing materials." However, the FTC expressly stated that "[t]his action is not to be construed as a determination that a violation of law did not occur" and "reserve[d] the right to take further action as the public interest may warrant." (Emphasis added.)
Shares of Canada Goose Holdings Inc. (NYSE: GOOS) declined $0.50 per share, or 1.36%, to close at $36.17 per share on June 17, 2019.
The plaintiff claims that between March 16, 2017 and August 1, 2019, the Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Canada Goose Holdings Inc sourced the down and fur used in its clothing products in a way that treated animals in an unethical and inhumane manner, that Canada Goose Holdings Inc was thus non-compliant with relevant FTC regulations pertaining to false advertising with respect to its sourcing practices, that accordingly, Canada Goose Holdings Inc was the subject of an ongoing FTC investigation regarding false advertising, and that as a result, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
