Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of Yelp Inc.

20:15 EDT Thursday, August 14, 2014

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Yelp Inc. ("Yelp" or the "Company") (NYSE: YELP), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

Harwood Feffer LLP

On March 31, 2014, an article was published in The Los Angeles Times reporting on the Company's practice of offering business customers a paid service to suppress negative reviews.  On April 2, 2014, The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission had received at least 2,046 complaints about Yelp since 2008. 

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
