About the Lawsuit
StoneCo and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On August 30, 2021, post-market, the Company disclosed that it had “implemented some prudent actions, like temporarily stopping the disbursement of credit and increasing coverage for potential future losses, which impacted [StoneCo’s] reported results for the quarter.” Then, on November 16, 2021, the Company disclosed that it would “start retesting our original [credit] product, which is short-term loans, between the fourth quarter of ’21 and the first quarter of ’22,” but did not provide specific guidance regarding when credit volumes would return to levels before StoneCo had halted origination of credit.
On this news, shares of StoneCo fell $10.96, or 34%, to close at $20.70 per share on November 17, 2021.
The case is Ray v. StoneCo Ltd., et al., 21-cv-9620.
