NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Lightspeed Commerce Inc. (“Lightspeed” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LSPD). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Lightspeed and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On September 29, 2021, market analyst Spruce Point Capital Management (“Spruce Point”) published a report regarding Lightspeed. Spruce Point also published a press release summarizing its findings. The summary stated, among other things, that “[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’”; that there was “[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”; 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”; and that there were “[w]eak governance standards and worrisome auditor oversight by PwC under a concerning CFO, who was tied to a prior technology roll-up scandal.”
On this news, Lightspeed’s share price fell $13.73 per share, or 12.2%, to close at $98.77 per share on September 29, 2021.
