DEFENDANTS’ ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
On September 21, 2021, Amplitude issued a press release announcing its financial results for Q2 2021. In the release, Amplitude highlighted several metrics that purportedly showed favorable growth at the company, including 66% quarterly revenue growth. Amplitude also stated that it expects that its full year 2022 total revenue growth will be in excess of 40%. The company also hosted an earnings call led in part by defendant Vuong, who emphasized that “[e]xpansion from existing customers were particularly robust as the team continued to execute well on our land-and-expand strategy.”

A week later, on September 28, 2021, Amplitude filed documents with the SEC in connection with its IPO through a direct listing, wherein the company continued to tout its land-and-expand strategy as one of its primary “Growth Strategies.” The following day, in an online AMA, defendant Skates highlighted that the company was experiencing explosive revenue growth. Thereafter, Amplitude continued to tout its growth and purported continued successful execution of its land-and-expand strategy.

Then, after the market closed on February 16, 2022, the truth was revealed when Amplitude revised downward its 2022 revenue guidance, from more than 40%, to a range of $226 million to $234 million (or 35% to 40%). During the earnings call that followed, Amplitude’s CFO stated that it was still “a few years” away from many of its new customers, “completely embrac[ing] the full capability of [Amplitude’s] digital optimization,” which he stated would eventually “drive larger expansion.”

After closing at $41.61 per share on February 16, 2022, the stock opened at $26 per share on February 17, 2022, 37% lower than its prior close, and continued dropping throughout the day, ultimately closing at $17.10, down nearly 59% on elevated trading volume of more than 20 million shares traded.

Amplitude investors may, no later than April 15, 2024, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
