The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased XP securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s registration statement and related prospectus (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) issued in connection with XP’s December 2019 initial public offering (the “IPO” or “Offering”). The case, Acerno v. Benchimol et al., No. 1:20-cv-01502 was filed on March 21, 2020.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company’s Registration Statement featured false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) XP engaged in undisclosed related party transactions; (2) XP failed to disclose its common and large system failures and connected losses; (3) XP’s aggressive Independent Financial Agent strategy was and is tenuous; (4) XP had material weaknesses; (5) XP fired its previous accounting firm due that firm finding and disclosing material weaknesses; and (6) as a result, defendants’ statements about XP’s business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
On March 6, 2020, The Winkler Group released a report (the “Report”) detailing, among other things, how XP had misled investors and failed to disclose pertinent information generally and in its Registration Statement, including: (1) undisclosed related party transactions; (2) R$100M in system failure expenses; (3) great uncertainty with regards to its Independent Financial Agents; (iv) the full circumstances regarding its firing and replacing its accounting firm KPMG for PwC; and (v) other undisclosed material weaknesses.
On this news, XP shares plummeted $9.12 per share over the rest of the trading day and the next full trading day, or 25.50%, to close at $26.64 per share on March 9, 2020, damaging investors.
