About the Lawsuit
PayPal and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On February 1, 2022, the Company disclosed that its net new active accounts figure (“NNAs”) was only 49 million for 2021, less than the guidance of 50 million it initially provided in February 2021 and lower than the raised guidance it reiterated just months prior, that it had identified 4.5 million accounts believed to have been illegitimately created, and that, as a result, it would change focus to increasing active user engagement rather than cash account opening incentives, which would reduce its ability to maintain growth in its NNAs.
On this news, shares of PayPal plummeted $43.23 per share, or approximately 25%, from a close of $175.80 per share on February 1, 2022 to close at $132.57 per share on February 2, 2022.
The case is Defined Benefit Plan of the Mid-Jersey Trucking Industry and Teamsters Local 701 Pension and Annuity Fund v. PayPal Holdings, Inc., et al., Case No. 22-cv-05864.
