[UPDATED] Zynga Execs Dumped Stock Before 41% Drop

Posted on Friday, July 27 @ 11:20:00 Eastern by


[Update]: Several class-action law firms have announced investigations into the stock crash and early sale by Zynga execs. Schubert Jonckheer & Kolbe, Newman Ferrara, Johnson & Weaver, Wohl and Fruchter, and Levi & Korsinsky will be looking into the situation.

All of these firms regularly conduct class-action lawsuits against corporations. Levin & Korsinsky recently brought a lawsuit against THQ over the failure of the uDraw tablet while Schubert Jonckheer & Kolbe have won suits against publishers like EA and Sony in the past.

[Original Story]: Following yesterday's 41% dive, Zynga stock sold today for as low as $3.17 a share. That's far lower than the price Zynga CEO Mark Pincus sold his stock for.

Yahoo news is reporting that Pincus sold $200 million worth of Zynga stock in April, joining Zynga's CFO, COO, and General Counsel in reaping millions. Combined, the executives sold 43 million shares of stock at $12 a share for $516 million.

Five hundred sixteen million dollars. 

Zynga is the developer of Words with Friends, FarmVille, and the purchasers and purveyors of failures like Draw Something.

Which is funny. Zynga's bloated IPO brought millions of dollars in. Draw Something was quite inflated as well, before Zynga spent $210 million on it. Let's hope the morons running the company get shafted just as equally in this situation.
