LAWSUIT FILED: Skillz Inc. Sued for Violations of the Federal Securities Laws; Investors Should Contact Block & Leviton LLP

Boston, Massachusetts--(Newsfile Corp. - May 10, 2021) - Block & Leviton LLP announces that a lawsuit for violations of the federal securities laws has been filed against Skillz Inc. (NYSE: SKLZ) and certain of its executives. Investors who have lost money should contact the firm to learn more about how they might recover those losses. For more details, visit https://www.blockleviton.com/cases/sklz. The deadline to move for appointment as lead plaintiff is July 7, 2021.

What is this all about?

Skillz provides a proprietary gaming platform for mobile gaming users and developers. Skillz connects players worldwide by hosting fee-based competitive eSports games on its platform. Skillz went public via Flying Eagle Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company (or SPAC) on December 16, 2020.

On March 8, 2021, analyst Wolfpack Research published a scathing report entitled "SKLZ: It Takes Little Skill to see this SPACtacular Disaster Coming." In this report, Wolfpack alleged that Skillz and certain of its executives had lauded "entirely unrealistic" growth projections. Wolfpack further alleged that the three games Skillz relies on for approximately 88% of its revenue had begun to decline before Skillz went public. On this news, shares fell approximately 11%.

Then on April 19, 2021, analyst Eagle Eye Research posted an anonymous report on Twitter in which it asserted that through the use of providing users with incentive bonus payments, Skillz "likely recognized substantial non-cash revenue, and . . . cash revenue may be less than ½ of GAAP revenue." On this news, Skillz shares fell another 6%.

Who is eligible?

Anyone who purchased Skillz shares between December 16, 2020 and April 19, 2021 and has now lost money may be eligible, whether or not they have sold their investment. Investors should contact Block & Leviton to learn more. The deadline to move the Court to be appointed lead plaintiff is July 7, 2021. A class has not yet been certified, and until a certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. If you choose to take no action, you can remain an absent class member.

What is Block & Leviton doing?

Block & Leviton is working to attempt to recover losses on behalf of investors who have lost money. A class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Jedrzejczyk v. Skillz Inc., et al., No. 3:21-cv-03450 (N.D. Cal.).
