HireRight Holdings Corp. Class Action

Robbins LLP is Investigating the Allegations that HireRight Holdings Corp. (HRT) Filed Misleading Documents in Connection with its IPO

Robbins LLP informs investors that a shareholder filed a class action on behalf of all stockholders who purchased or otherwise acquired HireRight Holdings Corp. (NYSE: HRT) securities pursuant to or traceable to the Offering Documents issued in connection with the Company’s October 2021 initial public offering (“IPO”).  HireRight provides technology-driven workforce risk management and compliance solutions to a customer base characterized as a “diverse set of organizations, from large-scale multinational businesses to small and medium-sized businesses, across a broad range of industries.”

The Allegations

On November 1, 2021, HireRight began publicly trading on the NYSE under the ticker symbol HRT. The complaint alleges that the Offering Documents in support of the IPO were negligently prepared. Specifically, they failed to disclose that: (i) HireRight was exposed to customers with significant employment and hiring risk and the Company derived greater revenue growth from existing client hiring than from new client hiring; (ii) as a result, the Company’s revenue growth was unsustainable to the extent that it relied on the stability of its current customers’ hiring and/or the profitability of securing new customers; and (iii) accordingly, HireRight had overstated its post-IPO business and/or prospects.

On January 19, 2023, Stifel, a brokerage and investment banking firm, downgraded HireRight’s stock to a Hold, prompting several market analysts to issue publications discussing the downgrade.  For example, Seeking Alpha reported that Stifel found HireRight to be exposed to large technology firms where there is more acute employment and hiring risk, and that more of the Company’s growth comes from existing client hiring than from new. On this news, HireRight’s stock price fell $0.88 per share, or 7.5%, to close at $10.75 per share on January 19, 2023. The stock now trades significantly below the $19.00 per share IPO price.
