The Shuman Law Firm Investigates IZEA Worldwide, Inc.                                                               

DENVER, CO October 19, 2018 – The Shuman Law Firm announces that it is investigating potential shareholder claims against certain officers and directors of IZEA Worldwide, Inc. (“IZEA” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: IZEA). IZEA creates and operates online marketplaces that connect marketers and content creators.

On February 26, 2018 IZEA announced that in connection with the preparation of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, the Company’s Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) determined that there was an error in accounting for revenue and cost of sales related to the self-service Content Workflow portion of the company’s revenue, and that as a result of additional review procedures necessitated by the accounting adjustments the Company needed additional time to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. Following these events, a class action lawsuit was filed against the Company and certain of its senior officers and directors alleging violations of federal securities laws.

Shares of IZEA fell $0.66 per share, or over 18%, on April 2, 2018, after the announcement that the Company would be late filing its 10-K, to close at $3.00 per share. The stock price then continued to fall the following trading day, and dropped another $0.58 per share, or over 19%, to close at $2.42 per share on April 3, 2018.
