Honest, a self-described "clean lifestyle movement" company headquartered in Los Angeles, has three product lines: (1) Diapers and Wipes, (2) Skin and Personal Care, and (3) Household and Wellness. Honest completed its initial public offering in May 2021.

On August 13, 2021, Honest reported a net loss of $20 million for Q2 2021, as compared to a net loss of only $0.4 million for Q2 2020, and disclosed that its revenue grew only 3% on account of "an estimated $3.7 million COVID-19 stock-up impact primarily in Diapers and Wipes in the prior year period." The Company further disclosed that Household and Wellness revenue declined 6% from Q2 2020 "as consumer and customer demand for sanitization products decreased as consumers became vaccinated and customers managed heavy levels of inventory."

On this news, Honest shares fell $3.98 per share, approximately 28%, to a close of $10.07 on August 13, 2021.

A recently filed complaint alleges that the Registration Statement was materially false and misleading and omitted that: (1) prior to the IPO, the Company's results had been significantly impacted by a multimillion-dollar COVID-19 stock-up for products in the Diapers and Wipes category and Household and Wellness category; and (2) at the time of the IPO, the Company was experiencing decelerating demand for such products.
