About the Lawsuit

On August 8, 2019, after market close, the Company revealed abysmal financial and operational results for the second quarter of 2019, including the resignation of its CEO, co-Founder Christopher Meaux; that its integration of BiteSquad.com, LLC, acquired in January 2019, was not proceeding according to plan; that the Company was laying off personnel; and that losses were running far ahead of plan and at a rate that eclipsed historical growth trends. Following this news, the price of Waitr shares fell 50%. Waitr’s market capitalization was $134 million, down from $910 million on March 13, 2019

The first case, filed by KSF, is Welch V. Meaux, et al, 2:19cv1260.
