(“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.

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.
