NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized shareholder rights law firm, is investigating potential claims against Vasta Platform Limited (NASDAQ: VSTA) on behalf of Vasta stockholders. Our investigation concerns whether Vasta has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

Click here to participate in the action.

On or around July 30, 2020, Vasta conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”), selling 18,575,492 of its Class A common shares priced at $19.00 per share.

Then, on August 20, 2020, Vasta issued a press release announcing the Company’s financial results for the second quarter and first half of 2020. Among other results, Vasta announced a second-quarter net loss of 54.9 million reais and revenue of 120.23 million reais, representing a revenue decline of 12.9% from the year-ago quarter. Vasta also advised investors that adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”), excluding non-recurring effects, was negative by 1.7 million reais in the second quarter, and that “[t]he different seasonality in revenue recognition seen in 2020 on account of a greater concentration of invoices at the start of the commercial cycle (4Q and 1Q) ended up having a negative impact on the basis of comparison against the same period last year.” The Company further advised that negative EBITDA of 10.9 million reais in the second quarter was “due to the extraordinary effects seen in the period, such as the different seasonality of revenue together with the impact of Covid-19 on the operation, as well as the inventory adjustment and higher marketing expenses.”

On this news, Vasta’s common share price fell $1.63 per share, or 8.81%, to close at $16.88 per share on August 21, 2020, representing an 11.16% decline from the IPO price.
