(“DigitalOcean” or the “Company”) (NYSE: DOCN) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired DigitalOcean securities between February 16, 2023, and August 25, 2023, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).

After the market closed on August 3, 2023, DigitalOcean Holdings announced quarterly financial results and disclosed that the Company’s previously issued financial statements for the period ending March 31, 2023 should no longer be relied on due to accounting errors that resulted in an overstatement of the Company’s income tax expense in the quarter of approximately $18 million. As a result of the errors, the Company would be restating its first quarter 2023 financials and announced that the restatement would “also include disclosure of an identified material weakness and that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2023.”
On this news, DigitalOcean’s stock price dropped approximately 24.8% in intraday trading the following day on August 4, 2023.
According to the complaint, 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 misled investors by failing to disclose that: (1) Defendants lacked the skills and experience to assess complicated tax matters and therefore did not design or maintain effective controls over the Company’s accounting for income taxes; and (2) that as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ financial statements were inaccurate and materially misleading.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired DigitalOcean shares and suffered a loss, are a long-term stockholder, have information, would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Brandon Walker or Marion Passmore by email at email@example.com, telephone at (212) 355-4648, or by filling out this contact form. There is no cost or obligation to you.
