ROBINHOOD’S ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
Robinhood, headquartered Menlo Park, California, is a financial services company that operates a mobile app which offers commission-free trading of stocks and allows users to invest in stocks, exchange-traded funds, and cryptocurrencies.
On July 30, 2021, Robinhood conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”) and issued 55 million shares at $38 per share, anticipating proceeds of over $2 billion. Then, on October 26, 2021, Robinhood announced its 2021 third-quarter financial results. The report revealed that Robinhood’s third-quarter total net revenue fell short of Wall Street estimates by nearly $73 million, as crypto transaction revenue totaled $51 million, a 78% plunge compared to the preceding quarter. Robinhood also reported declines in its monthly active users (“MAUs”), funded accounts, assets under custody, and average revenue per user. Following this news, Robinhood’s stock fell $4.13 per share, or 10.44%, to close at $35.44 per share on October 27, 2021.
Then, on November 8, 2021, Robinhood disclosed that it had suffered a “data security incident” on November 3, 2021, admitting that an “unauthorized third party” had obtained email addresses for approximately five million users and the full names of a different group of about two million users, indicating that the attack potentially affected nearly 40% of Robinhood’s MAUs. Following this news, Robinhood’s stock declined over 3% on November 9, 2021 to close at $36.70 per share, before then falling another 6% to close at $34.49 the very next day. As of the date the initial complaint was filed, Robinhood’s stock had traded as low as $17.08 per share, or over 55% below the $38 IPO price.
WHAT CAN I DO?
Robinhood investors may, no later than February 15, 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 Robinhood investors who have suffered significant losses to contact the firm directly to acquire more information.
