Philadelphia, Pennsylvania--(Newsfile Corp. - September 27, 2021) - Berger Montague is investigating securities fraud allegations against Katapult Holdings, Inc. ("Katapult" or the "Company"), formerly known as FinServ Acquisition Corp. The Firm is investigating these claims on behalf of investors who purchased Katapult securities (NASDAQ: KPLT) between December 18, 2020 and August 10, 2021 (the "Class Period").

Katapult, based in Plano, Texas, operates a digital application that provides lease-purchase options for non-prime consumers who cannot access traditional financing. Katapult was taken public by FinServ, a special purpose acquisition company, in a transaction completed in June 2021.

According to a recently filed lawsuit, Katapult concealed that it was experiencing declining e-commerce retail sales and consumer spending, and that, despite assertions that the Company was a clear and compelling value proposition, Katapult lacked visibility into consumers' buying behavior.

On August 10, 2021, just two months after Katapult closed the merger and gave its 2021 financial guidance, Katapult reported disappointing Q2 2021 financial results, with gross originations down 17% year-over-year, as well as earnings down 64.8% year-over-year. In addition, the Company withdrew its 2021 guidance entirely, blaming the dismal outlook on changes in both e-commerce retail sales outlook, uncertainty in assessing consumer spending behavior, and COVID-19.

On this news, the Company's share price fell $5.47 - more than 56% - to close at $4.26 per share on August 10, 2021,
