The Gross Law Firm Announces Class Actions on Behalf of Shareholders of VEL, AYX and BIDU

·3 mins read

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 27, 2020 / The securities litigation law firm of The Gross Law Firm issues the following notice on behalf of shareholders in the following publicly-traded companies. Shareholders who purchased shares in the following companies during the dates listed are encouraged to contact the firm regarding possible Lead Plaintiff appointment. Appointment as Lead Plaintiff is not required to partake in any recovery.

Velocity Financial, Inc. (NYSE:VEL)

This lawsuit is on behalf of investors who purchased VEL stocks pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus, as amended, issued in connection with Velocity's January 2020 initial public offering.

A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Velocity Financial, Inc. According to the filed complaint, defendants failed to disclose that, at the time of Velocity's initial public offering (the "IPO"), the Company's non-performing loans had dramatically increased in size from the figures provided in the Registration Statement and Prospectus that Velocity had issued in connection with the IPO. Further, defendants failed to provide any information to investors regarding the potential impact of the novel coronavirus on Velocity's business and operations, despite the fact that the international spread of the virus had already been confirmed at the time of the IPO. The failure to disclose the substantial and growing proportion of the Company's loans that were non-performing and/or on non-accrual status as of the IPO rendered the statements contained in the Registration Statement and Prospectus regarding the quality of the Company's loan portfolio and underwriting practices materially misleading.

Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE:AYX)

Investors Affected: May 6, 2020 - August 6, 2020

A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Alteryx, Inc. The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company was unable to close large deals within the quarter, and deals were pushed out to subsequent quarters or downsized; (2) as a result, Alteryx increasingly relied on adoption licenses to attract new customers; (3) as a result and due to the nature of adoption licenses, the Company's revenue was reasonably likely to decline; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Investors Affected: April 8, 2016 - August 13, 2020
