Did GoodRx Mislead Investors? Lawsuit Claims Dependence on Kroger Not Disclosed

GoodRx, a platform that helps people find discounts on prescription drugs, is facing a class action lawsuit from investors. The lawsuit alleges that GoodRx misled investors about its reliance on a specific grocery chain (reported to be Kroger) for a significant portion of its revenue. Here's a breakdown of the situation in simpler terms:

What GoodRx does

GoodRx helps people find coupons and discounts for prescription medications, potentially saving them money on their essential drugs. They also offer subscription plans like the "Kroger Rx Savings Club" for additional discounts at Kroger pharmacies. This can be a valuable tool for consumers looking to stretch their healthcare budget.

The lawsuit's claims

Investors are suing GoodRx, claiming they weren't given all the information they needed to make informed investment decisions. Here's the crux of the issue:

  • Overdependence on Kroger: The lawsuit alleges GoodRx didn't properly disclose how much revenue came from Kroger purchases, even though Kroger only accounted for a small percentage of pharmacies using GoodRx discounts. This lack of transparency is a key point of contention. Investors argue they weren't aware of how heavily GoodRx relied on a single source of income.

  • Potential Loss of Revenue: The lawsuit claims GoodRx failed to mention that Kroger could stop accepting GoodRx discounts at any time, which could significantly hurt their business. This highlights a potential risk that investors may not have been fully aware of.

When did things change?

The lawsuit points to two specific dates when information came to light that allegedly impacted GoodRx's stock price:

  • May 9, 2022: GoodRx revealed that a major grocery chain (believed to be Kroger) took actions impacting the acceptance of discounts for certain drugs. This disruption was estimated to cost GoodRx around $30 million in revenue. Following this news, the price of GoodRx stock reportedly dropped more than 25%.

  • November 8, 2022: GoodRx estimated the impact of the grocery chain issue on their revenue had grown to around $40 million and was expected to continue impacting them in the coming months. Additionally, the company acknowledged they were seeking contracts with pharmacies to prevent similar disruptions in the future. This further news allegedly caused another significant drop in GoodRx's stock price, exceeding 22%.
