||XPO Logistics, Inc.
||United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
||The Hon. Paul G. Gardephe
||between August 10, 2015 and December 13, 2018
On December 14, 2018, the initial complaint in this securities class action was filed against XPO Logistics, Inc. (“XPO” or the “Company”), and certain of XPO’s directors and officers, asserting violations of sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act.
The complaint alleged that during the class period, XPO was "cooking its books" to make it appear that it was performing better than it was. The defendants engaged in fraudulent accounting schemes and other improper accounting practices. At the core of the defendants' fraudulent scheme was the method by which the Company accounted for its numerous acquisitions, dubious tax accounting, under-reporting of bad debts, phantom income through unaccountable acquisition earn-out liabilities, and aggressive amortization assumptions: all designed to portray glowing "Non-GAAP" results. Meanwhile, throughout the class period, the defendants represented that XPO's financial statements complied with GAAP.
This is a federal securities class action brought on behalf of a class of those who purchased or otherwise acquired XPO common stock between August 10, 2015 and December 13, 2018, inclusive.
Current Status of Case:
This action was voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff on January 9, 2019.
