TASKUS’ ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
TaskUs is a business process outsourcing company focused on providing three key services to technology companies: (1) Digital Customer Experience (2) Content Security; and (3) Artificial Intelligence Operations.
On January 20, 2022, Spruce Point Capital Management, LLC issued an 80-page report on TaskUs titled “Moderating the Bull Case Content” based on its “forensic financial and accounting review” of TaskUs. The report indicated that TaskUs “has a pattern of exaggerated and inflated business claims, including revenue, and is covering-up financial strain with reduced disclosures, cherry-picked market data, and non-standard key performance metrics. With 28% of sales to Facebook and related to the controversial area of ‘Content Moderation’ we find evidence of increasing financial strain in the relationship and believe margins and cash flow are set to contract more than expected.” Additionally, the report stated, “we find a pattern of embellishing the size of its workforce and making overly optimistic revenue growth claims.”
Following this news, the price of TaskUs’ stock fell $5.46 per share, or more than 15%, from $35.59 per share on January 19, 2022, to $30.13 per share at the close of trading on January 20, 2022.
WHAT CAN I DO?
TaskUs investors may, no later than April 25, 2022 seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP encourages TaskUs investors who have suffered significant losses to contact the firm directly to acquire more information.
