what are the ALLEGATIONS IN THE LIVEPERSON CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT?
LivePerson delivers mobile and online messaging solutions through Conversational Artificial Intelligence. In February 2022, LivePerson acquired WildHealth, Inc., a precision medicine service, according to the complaint. The complaint further alleges that in November 2022, unbeknownst to investors, WildHealth received notice that reimbursements for its services rendered under a Medicare demonstration program related to COVID-19 testing (the “Program”) were suspended pending further review.
The LivePerson class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) LivePerson’s disclosure controls and procedures contained a material weakness; (ii) accordingly, LivePerson maintained deficient internal controls over its financial reporting; (iii) as a result, LivePerson’s third quarter 2022 financial statements failed to disclose the suspension of WildHealth’s Medicare reimbursements in connection with the Program and the resulting negative impact on LivePerson’s future revenues; and (iv) accordingly, LivePerson had overstated its future financial position and/or prospects.
The LivePerson class action lawsuit further alleges that on February 28, 2023, LivePerson revealed that, as a result of LivePerson’s acquisition of WildHealth, “[LivePerson] requires more time to perform additional review and testing of revenue recognition with respect to a recently discontinued WildHealth program, for which Medicare reimbursement is suspended pending further governmental review, and to complete its in-process review of internal controls and procedures.” On this news, the price of LivePerson stock fell more than 14%, according to the complaint.
Then, as the complaint further alleges, on March 6, 2023, LivePerson disclosed that “the referenced review of WildHealth revenue is anticipated to affect fourth quarter 2022 revenue attributable to WildHealth’s participation in a Medicare demonstration program, due to suspension in November 2022 of Medicare reimbursements under the program and pending further governmental review.” The LivePerson class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of LivePerson stock fell nearly 7%.
Finally, the complaint further alleges that on March 16, 2023, LivePerson revealed that “due to certain control deficiencies which aggregated to a material weakness in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting . . ., our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2022” and “[t]he control deficiencies, which in aggregate constitute a material weakness, were identified in connection with the Company’s previously disclosed review of certain transactions related to its subsidiary WildHealth.” The LivePerson class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of LivePerson stock fell nearly 58%.

HOW WAS THE CLASS PERIOD DETERMINED IN THE LIVEPERSON LAWSUIT?
In a securities fraud class action, the class period refers to a period of time in which it is alleged the price of the company’s stock was artificially inflated due to false and misleading statements made by company executives. The class period starts when the company makes an untrue statement of material fact about the company or fails to disclose a material fact necessary to render other statements not misleading. The class period ends when the truth is revealed to the investing public through a corrective disclosure.
To be a part of the class in the LivePerson lawsuit, you must have suffered losses in LivePerson stock by purchasing during the class period when it is alleged the price of the stock was artificially inflated to be included in the class action against LivePerson.
HOW CAN A LIVEPERSON STOCK LOSS LAWYER HELP ME IF I SUFFERED LOSSES IN LIVEPERSON STOCK?
A LivePerson stock loss Lawyer is well-versed in the complex laws that govern the securities industry and litigation and focuses on representing individual investors or funds who have been the victims of fraud or who have disputes with investment professionals such as the LivePerson lawsuit. Ordinary individual investors, including civil servants, teachers, nurses, and retirees, may need a securities lawyer. In most cases, they have lost money due to mistakes, incompetence, or fraud by an investment professional.
While FINRA, the SEC, and state securities regulators serve a vital role in protecting investors, they simply have too many individuals, firms, and market transactions to monitor to discover every act of fraud or negligence. Individual investors should consult with a securities lawyer if they have lost money due to fraud or stockbroker misconduct.
Look for a securities lawyer with experience, high ethical standards, verifiable credentials, and a trustworthy reputation among his peers and the judiciary, as well as testimonials from previous clients and awards and recognitions.

The Notice will instruct you what you need to do to file a claim. In some class action settlements, you are automatically submitted and need to do nothing further.
