About the Lawsuit

J.Jill and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On October 11, 2017, J.Jill disclosed a downgraded guidance for Q3 2017 relating to total company comparable sales and gross margin.  However, in its Registration Statement filed in conjunction with its March 9, 2017 IPO, the Company touted its unique business strategy as one that was expected to insulate the Company from adverse industry trends and allow for continued growth in gross profits.  On October 12, 2017, following the prior day’s disclosures, the Company’s shares closed at $4.86 per share –  more than 62% below its IPO price only seven months prior.
