According to the Complaint, Amplitude is a technology company that helps businesses analyze data for their digital products and track customer interactions. Beginning in September 2021, Amplitude claimed to be experiencing extraordinary growth due to “strong demand for [its products]” and a “robust” expansion from existing customers. Specifically, in connection with the Company’s second quarter 2021 earnings, Amplitude reported that “revenue growth accelerated” during the quarter and was “up 66% year over year.” The Company similarly reported that a key growth metric, known as current remaining performance obligations, was up 76% year-over-year and that its dollar-based net retention rate was 119%.

Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) Amplitude’s land-and-expand strategy was years away from significantly accelerating revenues among its newer client cohorts; and (ii) the rapid acceleration in Amplitude’s second quarter of 2021 results resulted from the ephemeral effects of the COVID-19 pandemic which had not continued by the start of the Class Period, as Amplitude clients were expanding at a slower pace.

After the market closed on February 16, 2022, Amplitude revealed its fourth quarter 2021 results and revised downward its 2022 fiscal guidance. Most troubling, the Company revealed that its vaunted land-and-expand strategy, which defendants had claimed had already proven successful, was in fact poised to “take a few years” before it was expected to accelerate results and that despite their prior assurances of sustainable growth, Amplitude management “really [did not] know” when this impact would occur.

On this news, Amplitude’s stock price fell $24.51, or 58.9%, to close at $17.10 per share on February 17, 2022.
