SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges Paycom Software, Inc. (NYSE: PAYC) investors who suffered substantial losses to submit your losses now.
Paycom Software, Inc. (NYSE: PAYC) Securities Fraud Class Action:
The complaint alleges that Paycom made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) Paycom’s Beti product led to cannibalization of the company’s services and revenues; (2) Paycom knew but did not disclose the cannibalization problem and did not warn of cannibalization as a general risk; (3) as a result of cannibalization, Paycom missed its expected 3Q 2023 revenue and would have to revise its expected FY 2023 revenues; and (4) the cannibalization issue resulted in 2024 year-over-year revenue growth sharply lower.
Investors learned the truth on Oct. 31, 2023, when Paycom reported its Q3 2023 financial results, including disappointing Q3 revenues, and guided for Q4 2023 and 2024 revenues that were significantly below consensus estimates. At the earnings call, Paycom CFO Craig Boelte explained that Paycom’s growth is being curbed by cannibalization, noting that clients have been cutting down spending on some services and other purchases because Beti has made them nonessential.
In response, the price of Paycom shares crashed $94.28 lower (or down about 38%) on Nov. 1, 2023.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and are investigating whether Paycom may have misled investors about the potentially adverse impact that Beti could have on other sources of revenue,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
