Amplitude, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMPL) Securities Fraud Class Action:

The litigation focuses on Amplitude's assurances that its "land-and-expand" business model (whereby it grew revenue by upselling existing clients on increased usage and new products) would continue to support revenue growth acceleration.

The complaint alleges that Amplitude made misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) Amplitude's land-and-expand strategy was years away from significantly accelerating revenues among its newer client cohorts; and (2) the rapid acceleration in Amplitude's Q2 2021 results was due to the short-lived effects of the COVID-19 pandemic which had not continued by the start of the Class Period, as Amplitude's clients were expanding at a slower pace.

Investors learned the truth on Feb. 16, 2022, when Amplitude announced financial results for Q4 2021 and revised downward its fiscal 2022 guidance. The company revealed that its land-and-expand strategy was in fact poised to "take a few years" before it was expected to accelerate results and that (despite prior assurances of sustainable growth) Amplitude management "really [did not] know" when this impact would occur.

This news drove the price of Amplitude shares crashing $24.51, or over 58%, lower on Feb. 17, 2022.

"We're investigating whether Amplitude may have misled investors about the sustainability of its plan for accelerating growth," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the Amplitude investigation.
