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%.
