The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Pluralsight common stock between August 2, 2018 and July 31, 2019 (the "Class Period"). The case, City of Birmingham Firemen's and Policemen's Supplemental Pension System v. Pluralsight, Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-07563 was filed on August 13, 2019.

The Company completed its initial public offering ("IPO") in May 2018, whereby it sold 23.8 million shares at a price of $15.00 per share. Less than a year later, Pluralsight completed a secondary public offering ("SPO") on March 6, 2019, whereby it sold 15.6 million shares at a price of $29.25 per share, for gross proceeds of over $450 million.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that Pluralsight was experiencing substantial delays in hiring and properly training the salesforce necessary to meet its lofty billing projections. In addition, the Company knew at the time of the SPO that it was behind schedule onboarding new sales representatives, which was hurting the Company's sales execution and preventing Pluralsight from meeting its high growth projections. Instead of disclosing such facts at the time of the SPO, and to cash-out at inflated prices, Defendants intentionally obscured and omitted this pertinent information from investors.

On July 31, 2019, after market close, Pluralsight announced disappointing financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019, and that its billings growth rate had sharply deteriorated from over 40% to just 23% year-over-year. The Company blamed its declining growth in billings on sales execution challenges and other issues with its salesforce. Pluralsight also disclosed that its Chief Revenue Officer was resigning.

On this news, Pluralsight's share price fell from $30.69 per share on July 31, 2019 to a closing price of $18.56 on August 1, 2019: a $12.13 or a 39.52% drop.

The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision to serve as a lead plaintiff or not.

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP also encourages anyone with information regarding Pluralsight's conduct to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
