Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading minority and certified woman-owned national securities law firm, is investigating potential claims against Fastly, Inc. (“Fastly” or the “Company”) (NYSE:FSLY) and reminds investors of the October 26, 2020 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company. 

If you suffered losses exceeding $50,000 Fastly stock or options between May 6, 2020 and August 5, 2020 and would like to discuss your legal rights, please fill out the form below. There is no cost or obligation to you. You can also contact Faruqi & Faruqi partner James Wilson toll free at 877-247-4292 or 212-983-9330 (Ext. 1310) or by emailing him at jwilson@faruqilaw.com to discuss your rights and options.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Fastly securities between May 6, 2020 and August 5, 2020  (the “Class Period”).  The case, Betancourt v. Fastly, Inc. et al, No. 20-cv-06024 was filed on August 27, 2020.

As detailed below, the lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose: (1) that Fastly’s largest customer was ByteDance, operator of TikTok, which was known to have serious security risks and was under intense scrutiny by U.S. officials; (2) that there was a material risk that Fastly’s business would be adversely impacted should any adverse actions be taken against ByteDance or TikTok by the U.S. government; and (3) that, as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Specifically, on August 5, 2020, after market close, the Company hosted an earnings call for its Q2 2020 results. On the call, Company CEO Joshua Bixby revealed for the first time that “ByteDance, the operator of TikTok[,] was our largest customer in the quarter.” Bixby also suggested on the call that ByteDance was a significant customer in Q1 as well, stating that “over the last six months, [TikTok] represents just about 12% of revenue, trailing 6 months ending June 30.”

On this news, Fastly’s stock fell from a closing price of $108.92 per share on August 5, 2020 to $89.64 per share on August 6, 2020—a $19.28 or 17.70% drop.
That same day, August 6, 2020, President Trump issued an executive order that would take effect in 45 days and prohibit any U.S. company or person from transacting with ByteDance, TikTok’s Chinese parent company.

On this news, Fastly’s shares continued to decline, dropping another $10.31 per share from the closing price on August 6, 2020, or approximately 11.5%, to close at $79.33 on August 7, 2020.
