Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP Files Securities Class Action Against Yuga Labs, Inc. (YUGA), its Executive Officers, and Celeb

NEW YORK , December 09 /Businesswire/ - Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international securities and consumer rights litigation firm, today announced that it has filed a class action lawsuit against Defendants Yuga Labs, Inc. (“Yuga” or the “Company”), Wylie Aronow, Greg Solano, Kerem Atalay, Zeshan Ali, Nicole Muniz, Jasmin Shoemaker, Patrick Ehrlund, Christopher Lyons (the “Executive Defendants”), Alexis Ohanian, Amy Wu, Maaria Bajwa, Dean Steinbeck (the “Ape DAO Board Defendants”), Guy Oseary, Mike Winkelmann, Madonna Louise Ciccone, Paris Hilton, James Fallon, Electric Hot Dog, Inc., Universal Television, LLC, Justin Bieber, Gwyneth Paltrow, Serena Williams, Thomas Pentz, Austin Richard Post, Calvin Broadus, Jr., Kevin Hart, Alexander Pall, Andrew Taggart, Wardell Stephen Curry II, Nayvadius Wilburn Cash, Abel Tesfaye, Khaled Mohammed Khaled, adidas America Inc., adidas Ventures B.V. (the “Promoter Defendants”), Ivan Soto-Wright, and MoonPay USA LLC.

The action, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and captioned Real et. al. v. Yuga Labs. Inc. et al., Case No. 2:22-cv-08909, asserts claims under §§5, 12(a)(1),15, and 20(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), as well as under §§10(b) and 20A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), and other California state consumer protection laws, on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the Yuga securities, which were sold as various non-fungible tokens (or “NFTs”) and the native token Ape Coin on various cryptocurrency exchanges from April 23, 2021 through December 8, 2022, inclusive (the “Class Period”), and who were damaged thereby.

Yuga is a cryptocurrency-related company that offers investors a suite of digital assets, including various collections of NFTs and the Company’s native token ApeCoin). Yuga’s brand and flagship NFT collection is referred to as the Bored Ape Yacht Club (“BAYC”).

The complaint alleges that Defendants violated provisions of the Exchange Act by making false and misleading statements concerning Yuga’s growth prospects, financial ownership, and financial benefits for Yuga securities investors, as well as using celebrity promoters to lure in unsuspecting investors so that Yuga insiders could sell the unregistered Yuga securities in violation of the Securities Act.

On November 13, 2022, the price of the ApeCoin Token hit a low of $2.70 per token, an approximately 90% drop from its height during the Class Period, which it has not been able to recover.

On November 14, 2022 the floor price of the Company’s NFT collections including the BAYC, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, and Otherdeed virtual land fell to similar Class Period lows.

Lead Plaintiff Deadline

The Lead Plaintiff deadline in this action is February 7, 2023. Any member of the proposed Class may seek to serve as Lead Plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain a member of the proposed Class.
