BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Wheels Up Experience Inc. (“Wheels Up” or the “Company”) (NYSE: UP) securities between November 9, 2022 and March 31, 2023, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Wheels Up investors have until June 19, 2023 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their Wheels Up investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On March 31, 2023, after the market closed, Wheels Up disclosed that it was restating prior financial statements “due to the identification of errors related to a non-cash goodwill impairment charge” of $62 million that “should have been recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2022.” The Company also stated that management had determined that a material weakness existed in its internal control over financial reporting and that it has “reconsidered its assessment and now concludes that [it] did not maintain effective disclosure controls and procedures.”
On this news, Wheels Up’s stock price fell $0.072, or 11.4%, to close at $0.561 per share on April 3, 2023, 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 that: (1) Wheels Up failed to address any material weaknesses with internal controls; (2) Wheels Up’s financial statements from September 30, 2022 to the present included “certain errors” such as understating net loss and overstating goodwill; (3) as a result, Wheels Up would need to restate its previously filed financial statements for certain periods; and (4) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
