Attention shareholders! A significant legal battle is brewing that could have far-reaching implications for UiPath, the leading provider of robotic process automation software. In this article, we delve into the details of the UiPath class action lawsuit and shed light on what shareholders need to know.
Understanding class action lawsuits
Class action lawsuits are a legal mechanism that allows a large group of individuals, known as class members, to collectively file a lawsuit against a defendant. These lawsuits are typically brought when a significant number of people have been harmed by the actions or omissions of a company, in this case, UiPath. By joining forces, shareholders can pool their resources and increase their chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.
ALLEGATIONS IN THE UIPATH CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT
UiPath is a global provider of robotic process automation software. On April 21, 2021, UiPath conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”), selling over 27.5 million UiPath shares for gross proceeds of more than $1.5 billion.
The UiPath class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) UiPath had enacted a widespread discounting program prior to its IPO, which had the effect of temporarily boosting UiPath’s revenue and annualized recurring revenue (“ARR”) metrics, cannibalizing its future sales, eroding UiPath’s margins, and increasing the risk of client churn; (ii) UiPath’s actual total addressable market was not as large as portrayed by defendants, because many companies included in UiPath’s market survey did not need the type of high-cost, high-functionality automation products offered by UiPath; (iii) UiPath was losing customers to Microsoft, ServiceNow, SAP, Salesforce, IBM, and other established enterprise software vendors that were building automation into their platforms; (iv) UiPath was losing customers due to the increased availability of low-code automation software offered by vendors, such as Microsoft’s Power Automate software, which were capable of addressing the majority of customer use cases at a fraction of the price of UiPath’s products and services; and (v) UiPath was suffering from a loss of channel sales due to strained relationships with UiPath’s partners as a result of increased competition between UiPath and these partners.
On September 7, 2021, UiPath announced financial results for the quarter ended July 31, 2021. Specifically, UiPath revealed an unexpected slowdown in UiPath’s revenues and reported ARR metrics. UiPath further revealed that it had engaged in substantial discounting of its products prior to the IPO and that UiPath was in the process of altering the structure of its contracts to include a “ramping” feature whereby customer contract commitments would start small and increase over time and thereby reduce the need for UiPath to offer widespread discounting as it had before. The UiPath class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of UiPath common stock declined more than 12%.
Then, on December 8, 2021, UiPath announced its financial results for the quarter ended October 31, 2021. UiPath revealed that UiPath’s growth had stalled further, disclosing that its ARR annual growth rate during the quarter had declined for the third quarter in a row to 58% and that its net new ARR remained subdued at 42% growth year-over-year, down substantially from the 55% growth reported in the first quarter 2022 earnings release. The UiPath class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of UiPath common stock declined more than 7% over a two-day period.
Finally, on March 30, 2022, UiPath announced financial results for the quarter and year ended January 31, 2022. UiPath disclosed that it had earned revenues of just $289.7 million during the quarter, representing year-over-year growth of 39%. UiPath further revealed deeply disappointing ARR and revenue guidance, revealing that the declining growth trends adversely impacting UiPath were expected to continue. UiPath also announced the abrupt departure of Thomas Hansen, UiPath’s Chief Revenue Officer, who was responsible for developing relationships with UiPath’s current and prospective customers, expanding UiPath’s partnership network, and fostering UiPath’s developer community. The UiPath class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of UiPath common stock declined more than 25%.
