FAT Accused of Misrepresenting Its Financial Figures in Its
Offering Documents

According to the complaint, on October 23, 2017, FAT held its IPO,
selling 2 million shares of common stock priced at $12 per share,
raising $24 million in gross proceeds. FAT officials subsequently
emphasized that FAT's asset-light business model allows for growth with
minimal capital expenditures through franchising. Despite these
representations, FAT's then-present free cash flow was not enough to
cover its outsized dividend. In addition, at the time of the IPO, FAT
failed to disclose that its sales growth had significantly declined and
that the fast-casual dining sector was facing slowdown in growth due to
customers fleeing to cheaper, quicker fast-food chains. When the market
learned the truth about FAT's business metrics and financial prospects,
FAT's stock plummeted, and now trades at less than $8 per share, a 34%
decrease from its IPO price.
