Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the upcoming January 9, 2024 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the case filed on behalf of investors who purchased Paycom Software, Inc. ("Paycom" or the "Company") (NYSE:PAYC) securities between May 3, 2023 and November 1, 2023,, inclusive (the "Class Period").
Investors suffering losses on their Paycom investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On October 31, 2023, Paycom released its third quarter 2023 financial results and provided financial projections for 2024, estimating 10-12% revenue growth compared to analyst estimates of a 21% increase. The following day, November 1, 2023, Reuters published an article reporting that Paycom "executives said a jump in usage of its flagship product Beti, which increases efficiency for clients by letting their employees do their own payroll, was ‘cannibalizing' some revenues it would have otherwise earned."
On this news, Paycom's stock price fell $94.28, or 38.4%, to close at $150.69 per share on November 1, 2023, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Paycom's Beti product led to cannibalization of the Company's services and revenues; (2) Paycom knew but failed to disclose that Beti was leading to cannibalization of the Company's services and revenues, and failed to warn of cannibalization as a general risk; (3) as a result of cannibalization of revenue, Paycom missed its expected 3Q23 revenue and would have to revise its expected 2023 Revenues; (4) the cannibalization issue resulted in projected 2024 year-over-year revenue growth of between 10% and 12%, well below expectations; and (5) as a result, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired Paycom securities during the Class Period, you may move the Court no later than January 9, 2024 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the class action you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the class action.
