Vestis is a uniform services provider that provides rental uniforms and workplace supplies to businesses throughout the United States and Canada.  The Company used to operate as the Uniform Services division of Aramark, a food and facilities services provider, until it was spun off as an independent publicly traded company in September 2023.

The action alleges that during the Class Period, Vestis misrepresented and failed to disclose materially adverse facts regarding the Company’s operations, including that: (i) Aramark had not invested sufficiently in its Uniform Services division prior to the spinoff of Vestis, and (ii) as a result, the Company had experienced services gaps and was not in a position to meet the growth projections that defendants touted.

On May 2, 2024, before the market closed, Vestis released disappointing financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024.  The Company lowered its outlook for fiscal year 2024, reporting projected revenue growth of negative 1% to 0%.  During the Company’s earnings conference call with analysts and investors held later that day, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, defendant Kimberly Scott, said that “service gaps have driven price sensitivity.”  Analysts were surprised by the Company’s announcements, including a JP Morgan analyst who remarked, “[a]s you had articulated, your plan had been just a couple of months ago for a targeted area price increase, and then you pivoted to a price decrease.”  On this news, Vestis’s common stock price fell $8.31 per share, or 45%, from its closing price of $18.47 per share on May 1, 2024, to close at $10.16 per share on May 2, 2024, on unusually heavy trading volume.
