According to the lawsuit, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) J. Jill’s supposedly unique and superior sales and marketing approach had not insulated it from adverse trends affecting the overall retail industry; (2) J. Jill’s historic gross margin growth was not sustainable and would not continue, as it relied on revenues from shipping fees, increased promotional efforts and other short-term revenue boosts; (3) J. Jill was carrying increasing amounts of slow moving inventory and would need to significantly mark down sales items and increase promotional efforts to continue its sales growth; (4) J. Jill’s brick-and-mortar stores were failing because they experienced difficulty attracting customers and maintaining profitability, resulting in eight store closures in fiscal year 2017 with the closure rate accelerating; and (5) J. Jill’s business, prospects and ability to service its long-term debt had been materially impaired. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
