Background on Sprout Social, Inc.

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Sprout Social develops and operates a web-based social media management platform globally.

The Securities Fraud Claims

On August 3, 2023, Sprout Social announced its acquisition of Tagger Media, Inc., an influencer marketing and social intelligence platform utilized by enterprise brands and agencies. On September 27, 2023, Sprout Social announced at an investor event its plans to "accelerate our outbound marketing and sales efforts in the enterprise sector" with a focus on mid-market and enterprise leadership.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements regarding the company's business, operations, and prospects, including that: (i) the Company's sales and revenue growth were not indicative of its growth as it transitioned to an enterprise sales cycle; (ii) Sprout Social faced integration challenges with its acquisition of Tagger; (iii) as a result, the company was "self-inducing sales headwinds" and would be forced to revise fiscal year 2024 revenue guidance.

On May 2, 2024, Sprout Social announced that it had missed its Q1 2024 revenue guidance and lowered its full-year 2024 revenue forecast by $20 million. CFO Joe Del Preto claimed, "We underestimated the magnitude of enterprise seasonality that now comes with our business mix, while also self-inducing sales execution headwinds during Q1…" Incoming CEO Ryan Barretto disclosed that strategic changes made in Q4 2023, which were executed in Q1 2024, caused disruptions. On this news, Sprout Social's stock price fell $19.33, or 40.1%, to close at $28.82 on May 3, 2024, on unusually heavy trading volume.
