On August 8, 2019, after the market closed, the Company revealed that its Chief Executive Officer had resigned; that the integration of BiteSquad.com, LLC, which Waitr had acquired in January 2019, was not proceeding according to plan; and that the Company was laying off personnel.
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.87, or roughly 50% to close at $1.89 per share on August 9, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Defendants had artificially bolstered profits and revenues by unilaterally raising prices in breach of customer contracts and failed to properly reimburse drivers for expenses; (2) that providing services at the low take rate of 15% was not sustainable; (3) that its labor model was inefficient and resulted in rising, unsustainable costs; (4) that its financial statements were not true, accurate or reliable; and (5) that the Company’s software provided little or no competitive advantages.
