TrueCar Stock Prices Fall 35 Percent After Financial Results Revealed
According to a class action complaint filed in March 2018, TrueCar repeatedly made misleading public statements and withheld critical information about significant developments affecting the company’s largest source of revenue, United Services Automobile Association (USAA), between February 16, 2017 and November 6, 2017.
Plaintiffs in the class action claim that TrueCar, Inc. and other defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- the largest source of TrueCar’s revenue, the United States Automobile Association (“USAA”), had been planning significant changes to its website that would have a material adverse effect on the volume of purchases generated by USAA;
- USAA made significant changes to its website that would have a material adverse effect on the volume of purchases generated by USAA;
- the changes to USAA’s website maintained by TrueCar caused a material adverse effect on the volume of purchases generated by USAA; and
- as a result, defendants’ statements about TrueCar’s business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
The complaint also states that TrueCar, Inc. made public statements about future prospects and the growth of the company, allegedly causing the company’s stock to be traded at artificially inflated prices. Once the company reported its third quarter 2017 financial results, TrueCar’s stock price fell by over 35 percent.
