Background on the Pluralsight Securities Class Litigation

Pluralsight, headquartered in Farmington, Utah, is a provider of cloud-based and video training courses.

The action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Pluralsight misrepresented its business outlook, especially with respect to the Company’s salesforce and its capacity to generate strong growth in billings.  In particular, Pluralsight failed to disclose that it was undergoing significant delays in the process of hiring and adequately training the salesforce necessary to meet the Company’s billing projections.

On July 31, 2019, after markets closed, Pluralsight announced its second quarter 2019 financial results, revealing that the Company’s billings growth rate had slowed from 40% to 23% year-over-year.  Pluralsight attributed the delay in growth in billings to challenges in sales execution and other salesforce problems.  The Company additionally disclosed that its Chief Revenue Officer was resigning.  On this news, the price of Pluralsight shares fell $12.13 per share, or nearly 40%, from its closing price of $30.69 to close at $18.56 per share on August 1, 2019.
