New Developments in Investigation of XP, Inc.; Investors Who Lost Money Should Contact Block & Leviton

BOSTON, March 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National securities litigation firm Block & Leviton (www.blockesq.com) announces new developments in its investigation of whether XP, Inc. (XP) and certain of its officers misled investors. Investors who have lost money are encouraged to contact us for a free case evaluation.

XP, one of Brazil’s largest brokerage firms, went public on December 13, 2019 in a $1.96 billion public offering. On March 6, 2020, less than three months later, investment firm The Winkler Group published a short report raising serious questions about the accuracy of XP’s financials. Among other things, the report charges that there are significant discrepancies between XP’s internal audits and the financial statements the company provided investors in its IPO prospectus. In addition, the report alleges that XP fired its auditor after it discovered material weaknesses in the company’s internal controls.

Today, XP filed a response to The Winkler Group’s report with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission, disputing these allegations. Despite XP’s response, the company’s stock continues to nosedive, down over 12% in intraday trading.

“We will continue to rigorously investigate the matter, focusing on investor losses” said Mark Delaney, the Block & Leviton attorney leading the investigation.
