Nextdoor Holdings, Inc. Class Action

Nextdoor Holdings, Inc. (KIND) Allegedly Made False and Misleading Statements

Robbins LLP informs investors that a shareholder filed a class action on behalf of all those who purchased or otherwise acquired Nextdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: KIND) Class A common stock between July 6, 2021 and November 8, 2022. Self-proclaimed as the “neighborhood network,” Nextdoor operates a hyperlocal online social networking platform that connects neighbors, public agencies, and businesses via the internet.

The Allegations

According to the complaint, on July 6, 2021, amid seemingly favorable market trends, Nextdoor Private announced that it would become a publicly traded company through a merger with the special purpose acquisition company KV Acquisition Co. The merger was completed on November 5, 2021.

Plaintiff alleges that during the class period, defendants failed to disclose that: (a) Nextdoor’s financial results prior to the merger had been temporarily inflated by the ephemeral effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which had pulled forward demand for Nextdoor’s platform and cannibalized future advertising revenue growth; (b) rather than being sustained, such growth trends had already begun reversing at the start of the class period; (c) Nextdoor’s total addressable market was materially smaller than the 312 million households represented to investors; (d) by the start of the class period, Nextdoor’s most important market –the U.S. market – was already substantially saturated, impairing the Company’s ability to monetize users and increase its ARPU or U.S. WAUs; and (e) as a result of the above, Nextdoor’s revenue guidance for fiscal year 2022 had no reasonable basis in fact and the Company was tracking tens of millions of dollars below the revenue trajectory provided to investors. 

On March 1, 2022, Nextdoor reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2021 – the same quarter during which the merger was completed.  Contrary to defendants’ prior claims that accelerating growth trends were being sustained, the Company reported that the revenue growth rate in the fourth quarter had declined sequentially by 18% to 48% year-over-year growth.  In addition,  Nextdoor reported quarterly ARPU of $1.65, revealing that the ARPU growth rate in the quarter had declined substantially by 26% to just 12% year-over-year growth from 38% growth in the third quarter, which indicated that the Company’s ability to monetize its platform was faltering. On this news, the price of Nextdoor common stock declined approximately 14%, from $6.24 on March 1, 2022 to $5.39 on March 4, 2022.

Nextdoor would ultimately go on to report three consecutive quarters of disappointing financial and operational results. As a result, the price of Nextdoor Class A common stock declined precipitously from the trading high immediately following the close of the merger of $18.59 per share to just $2.06 per share at the end of the class period, causing investors in Nextdoor to suffer millions of dollars in financial losses.
