|Company Name||Yext, Inc.|
|Class Period||March 04, 2021 to March 08, 2022|
|Lead Plaintiff Motion Deadline||August 16, 2022|
On March 8, 2022, Yext released its fourth quarter and full year 2022 fiscal results, reporting a Q4 revenue of $100.9 million, missing consensus estimates by $140,000. The same day, Yext revealed that its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer were both stepping down from their positions. During the related conference call, the Company’s incoming CEO stated that “[i]n hindsight, it is clear we were too focused on building sales capacity and not focused enough on other functions that drive productivity . . . .”
On this news, Yext’s stock fell $0.55, or 9.3%, to close at $5.37 per share on March 9, 2022.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Yext’s revenue and earnings were significantly deteriorating because of, inter alia, poor sales execution and performance, as well as COVID-19 related disruptions; (2) accordingly, Yext was unlikely to meet consensus estimates for its full year (“FY”) fiscal 2022 financial results and fiscal 2023 outlook; and (3) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
