Background on the Lightspeed Securities Class Litigation

Lightspeed, incorporated in Canada and headquartered in Montréal, provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for small and midsize businesses.

The action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) Lightspeed had overstated the strength of its business including its customer count, gross transaction volume, and increase in Average Revenue Per User and concealed the Company’s declining organic growth and business; (b) Lightspeed had overstated the benefits and value of the Company’s various acquisitions; and (c) consequently, the Company had overstated its financial position and prospects.

On September 29, 2021, market analyst Spruce Point Capital Management (“Spruce Point”) reported that Lightspeed had “massively inflated its business pre-IPO, overstating its customer count by 85% and gross transaction volume (‘GTV’) by 10%.” Spruce Point further reported that Lightspeed’s growth had declined and business had deteriorated despite management’s claims that Average Revenue Per User was increasing, and that Lightspeed’s “[r]ecent acquisition spree has come at escalating costs with no clear path to profitability.” On this news, the price of Lightspeed’s stock trading on the NYSE fell $13.73 per share, or 12.2%, from its closing price of $112.50 on September 28, 2021, to close at $98.77 per share on September 29, 2021.

On November 4, 2021, before trading opened, Lightspeed announced its fiscal second quarter of 2022 financial results for the interim period ended September 30, 2021. Lightspeed revealed that roughly half of its 2Q:22 revenue growth on a year-over-year basis stemmed from new business acquisitions, while organic revenue in its core segments of subscriptions and transcriptions grew only 58%, far below the 78% growth the Company reported. Further, Lightspeed’s guidance for the remainder of its fiscal year showed that its acquisitions had primarily accounted for its earlier revenue growth, as Spruce Point had claimed. The Company was now projecting only a 7% sequential revenue growth for its third quarter of 2022 and no sequential growth for the fourth quarter of 2022. On this news, the price of Lightspeed stock trading on the NYSE declined more than $27.61 per share, or 27.9% from its close of $98.97 per share on November 3, 2021, to close at $71.36 per share on November 4, 2021, on extremely heavy trading volume.
