Expensify, Inc. (EXFY) Failed to Disclose Material Relevant Information in Connection with its Registration Statement in Support of its IPO

A class action on behalf of all persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Expensify, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFY) common stock pursuant to the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) conducted on November 11, 2021. The complaint alleges violations under the Securities Act of 1933. Expensify provides a cloud-based expense management software platform to individuals, small business, and corporations in the U.S. and internationally.  

According to the complaint, Expensify conducted its IPO on November 11, 2021, selling 9.73 million shares priced at $27 per share. However, the Offering Documents in support of the IPO failed to disclose that: (i) Expensify’s revenue growth was highly susceptible to structural and macroeconomic headwinds; (ii) as a result, the Company overstated the efficacy of its business model and the likelihood it would meet the long-term growth projections touted in the Offering Documents; (iii) accordingly, the Company’s post-IPO financial position and/or business prospects were overstated; and (iv) as a result, defendants’ statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

Plaintiff alleges that on June 12, 2023, Morgan Stanley downgraded Expensify to Underweight from Equal-weight, citing structural headwinds and the Company’s risk-reward profile. On this news, Expensify’s stock price fell $0.45 per share, or 6.28%, to close at $6.72 per share on June 12, 2023. Then, on August 8, 2023, Expensify announced its second quarter 2023 financial and operating results. Among other items, Expensify reported GAAP EPS of -$0.14, missing consensus estimate of -$0.07, and revenue of $38.9 million, which likewise missed the consensus estimate of  $41.5 million. Expensify also withdrew its previously issued revenue growth guidance.  Following Expensify’s disclosures, JMP Securities downgraded the Company to Market Perform from Market Outperform. On this news, Expensify’s stock price fell $1.69 per share, or 28.55%, to close at $4.23 per share on August 9, 2023.

Finally, on November 7, 2023, Expensify announced third quarter 2023 financial and operating results that once again missed consensus estimates amid macroeconomic headwinds.  Among other items, Expensify reported a Q3 GAAP loss of $0.21 per share and a 14.1% year-over-year revenue decline. On this news, Expensify’s stock price fell $1.07 per share, or 36.89%, to close at $1.83 per share on November 8, 2023.
