The filed complaint alleges that the Registration Statement was false and misleading and omitted to state material adverse facts. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors:

  • that the Company’s Slack Platform was susceptible to recurring service-level disruptions;
     
  • that such disruptions were increasingly likely to occur as the Company scaled its services to a larger user base;
     
  • that the Company provides credits even if a customer was not specifically affected by service-level disruptions;
     
  • that, as a result, any service-level disruptions would have a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial results; and
     
  • that, 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.

In June 2019, Slack went public through the Offering of its Class A common stock with a reference price of $26.00 per share.

On September 4, 2019, Slack reported its second-quarter fiscal 2019 results and issued guidance for the third quarter, expecting a wider loss than analysts predicted. The Company also stated that revenue “was negatively impacted by $8.2 million of credits related to service level disruption in the quarter.”

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $3.69, or nearly 12%, over two consecutive trading sessions to close at $27.38 per share on September 6, 2019.

As of the date of this release, the Company’s stock was trading as low as $21.43 per share, 17.5% below the $26.00 per share reference price for the Offering.
