The Yext class action lawsuit seeks to represent purchasers or acquirers of Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT) securities between March 4, 2021 and March 8, 2022, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The Yext class action lawsuit – captioned Menzione v. Yext, Inc., No. 22-cv-05127 (S.D.N.Y.) – charges Yext and certain of its top executive officers with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Read on to learn more including the Firm’s investigation of the Board for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations.
Allegations in the Yext Class Action Lawsuit
Yext operates Yext platform, a cloud-based platform that allows its customers to, among other things, provide answers to consumer questions, control facts about their businesses and the content of their landing pages, and manage their consumer reviews. As COVID-19 resurged throughout 2021, Yext consistently assured investors that pandemic-related impacts on Yext’s business were limited as Yext adapted to lockdowns and improved efficiencies in its sales and other operations.
The Yext class action lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (i) Yext’s revenue and earnings were significantly deteriorating because of, among other things, poor sales execution and performance, as well as COVID-19 related disruptions; (ii) accordingly, Yext was unlikely to meet consensus estimates for its full year fiscal 2022 financial results and fiscal 2023 outlook; and (iii) as a result, Yext’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On March 8, 2022, Yext reported fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 revenue of $100.9 million, falling short of consensus estimates by $140,000; first quarter of fiscal 2023 revenue outlook of $96.3 million to $97.3 million, versus consensus estimates of $103.79 million; first quarter of fiscal 2023 non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) net loss per share outlook of $0.08 to $0.07, versus consensus estimates of $0.05; full year fiscal 2023 revenue outlook of $403.3 million to $407.3 million, versus consensus estimates of $444.71 million; and full year fiscal 2023 non-GAAP net loss per share outlook of $0.19 to $0.17, versus consensus estimates of $0.09. Yext further disclosed the departure of its CEO and CFO. On this news, Yext’s stock price fell more than 9%, damaging investors who suffered losses in Yext stock.
