According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose Lightspeed had: (i) misrepresented the strength of its business by, among other things, overstating its customer count, gross transaction volume (“GTV”), and increase in Average Revenue Per User (“ARPU”), while concealing the Company’s declining organic growth and business deterioration, and (ii) overstated the benefits and value of the its various acquisitions.
On September 29, 2021, Spruce Point Capital Management published a report regarding Lightspeed, stating: “[e]vidence shows that Lightspeed massively inflated its business pre-IPO, overstating its customer count by 85% and gross transaction volume (‘GTV’) by 10% – a payment volume metric that a former employee described as ‘smoke and mirrors.’” The report also revealed “[e]vidence of declining organic growth and business deterioration through Lightspeed’s IPO, despite management’s claims that Average Revenue Per User (‘ARPU’) is increasing” and that the Company’s “[r]ecent acquisition spree has come at escalating costs with no clear path to profitability, while management pursues aggressive revenue reporting practices.” On this news, Lightspeed’s stock price fell $13.73 per share, or over 12%, to close at $98.77 per share on September 29, 2021.
