November 18, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 17, 2021--

Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Lightspeed Commerce Inc. (“Lightspeed” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LSPD) in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Lightspeed securities between September 11, 2020 and September 28, 2021, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).

On September 29, 2021, Spruce Point Capital Management published a report alleging, among other things, that the Company was “overstating its customer count by 85% and gross transaction volume (‘GTV’) by 10%.” The report also stated there was “[e]vidence of declining organic growth and business deterioration through Lightspeed’s IPO, despite management’s claims that Average Revenue Per User (‘ARPU’) is increasing.”

On this news, Lightspeed’s share price fell $13.73 per share, or more than 12%, to close at $98.77 per share on September 29, 2021, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Lightspeed had misrepresented the strength of its business by, inter alia, overstating its customer count, GTV, and increase in ARPU, while concealing the Company’s declining organic growth and business deterioration; (ii) Lightspeed had overstated the benefits and value of the Company’s various acquisitions; (iii) accordingly, the Company had overstated its financial position and prospects; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
