Funko, Inc. (FNKO) Investigation:

The investigation centers on whether Funko and its senior management overstated demand for its products and the value of its reported inventory.

In past quarters Funko has emphasized the "favorable trends in product costs," "stronger demand," and "stronger opportunities" for its pop culture products.

On Feb. 5, 2020, however, the Company shocked investors when it announced disappointing Q4 2019 revenues of $214 million, or nearly 20% below analysts' consensus, and EPS of $0.16 to $0.18, or nearly 58% - 62% below street projections.  Management blamed these poor results in part on a $16.8 million charge to write down slow-moving inventory. 

In response to Funko's dim 2020 guidance, D.A. Davidson reportedly said it has "low confidence in the 'hockey stick sales guidance.'"  JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers reportedly said "[t]actically, back half-weighed stories are tough to endorse, especially on such a big 4Q miss" and "[i]n our view, the stock looks to be in the penalty box for an extended period.

This news drove the price of Funko shares sharply lower on Feb. 6, 2020.

"We're focused on investors' losses and whether Funko misstated sales and inflated the value of its inventory," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
