According to the lawsuit, Sea World failed to disclose in its IPO documents that it (a) had improperly cared for and mistreated its Orca population which adversely impacted trainer and audience safety; (b) continued to feature and breed an Orca that had killed and injured numerous trainers; and (c) consequently created material uncertainties and risks existing at the time of IPO that could adversely impact attendance at its family oriented parks. When details of the Company’s improper practices were revealed by the documentary film Blackfish, the lawsuit claims that SeaWorld misled investors by claiming the decrease in attendance at its parks were caused by Easter holiday and other factors. The complaint asserts that the decline in attendance was caused by the mounting negative publicity from the improper practices at SeaWorld that were revealed by the Blackfish film.
On August 13, 2014, the price of SeaWorld Stock dropped by $9.25 per share, or 32.9%. This drop followed SeaWorld’s announcement of earnings for the second quarter of 2014, where it revealed that revenues fell year over year and acknowledged for the first time that its earnings difficulties were related to negative publicity it has received in connection with its treatment of animals.
