Law Firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP Has Filed a Class Action Against Angie's List, Inc. and Certain Of Its Officers

NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

The law firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against Angie's List, Inc. (Angie's List) (NASDAQ:ANGI) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in the United States District Court, Southern District of Indiana, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired ANGI securities between February 14, 2013 and October 23, 2013, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

If you are a shareholder who purchased ANGI securities during the Class Period, you have until February 24, 2014 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at: http://www.wohlfruchter.cm/cases/angi.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and failed to disclose material facts, regarding Angie's List's business model, and operational policies, and that as a result of the foregoing, lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the strength and viability of Angie's List's business model during the Class Period. In particular, Defendants had stressed that Angie's List's membership fees represented a significant source of working capital and provided a relatively predictable revenue stream.

The Complaint further alleges that between September 30, 2013 and October 24, 2013, Defendants disclosed, among other things, that: (i) Angie's List's Chief Technology Officer had been terminated - without explanation or naming a replacement; (ii) Angie's List had slashed membership prices by roughly 75% in several key markets, in a bid to attract new members; and (iii) Angie's List third quarter 2013 financial results were much weaker than Defendants had led the market to expect, and declining business metrics and flaws in its business model were forcing Angie's List to issue weaker fourth quarter 2013 financial guidance. On this and other negative disclosures, the price of Angie's List common stock declined from $20.99 on October 2, 2013 to close at $14.64 on October 24, 2013, a decline of over 30%.
