XPO's Officers and Directors Accused of Misleading Investors

According to the complaint, since September 2011, XPO grew from an aggressive and ill-advised mergers and acquisition strategy. XPO touted its strategy and accompanying fast-paced growth through its publicly issued financial statements. However, those financial statements contained irregularities that conveniently disguised its true financial state. On December 12, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management started casting doubt on the legitimacy of XPO's growth by publishing a report asserting that XPO was covering financial irregularities. It had evidence to suggest XPO was utilizing dubious tax accounting methods and aggressive amortization assumptions amongst other factors to portray glowing Non-GAAP results. By Spruce Point's calculations, XPO's acquisitions had "generated $73m of cumulative adjusted free cash flow in an expansionary economic period… [and is] indicative of a failed business strategy yielding a paltry 1.2% return on invested capital." Following the publication of the Spruce Point report, XPO's stock price fell $15.77, or 26.17%, to close at $44.50 on December 13, 2018.
