Digital Turbine is a software company that delivers products to assist third parties in monetizing through the utilization of mobile advertising. The Company completed its acquisitions of AdColony Holdings AS (“AdColony”) and Fyber N.V. (“Fyber”) on April 29 and May 25, 2021, respectively.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) the Company’s recent acquisitions, AdColony and Fyber, act as agents in certain of their respective product lines; (ii) as a result, revenues for those product lines must be reported net of license fees and revenue share, rather than on a gross basis; (iii) the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as to revenue recognition was deficient and the Company relatedly conducted insufficient due diligence into AdColony and Fyber; (iv) accordingly, it was unlikely the Company would be able to accurately report the revenues associated with the AdColony and Fyber acquisitions; (v) as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s net revenues were overstated throughout fiscal 2022; and (vi) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On May 17, 2022, Digital Turbine issued a press release revealing that it will “restate its financial statements for the interim periods ended June 30, 2021, September 30, 2021, and December 31, 2021, following a review of the presentation of revenue net of license fees and revenue share for the Company’s recently acquired businesses.” In a SEC filing on Form 8-K made that same day, Digital Turbine specified that the “recently acquired businesses” at issue were AdColony and Fyber.
On this news, the Company’s shares fell $1.93, or 7.1%, to close at $25.28 per share on May 18, 2022, on unusually heavy trading volume.
Then, on May 31, 2022, Digital Turbine issued a press release announcing the Company’s Q4 and fiscal year 2022 financial results, in which the Company provided an earnings per share figure that missed consensus estimates and a weak revenue forecast.
On this news, the Company’s shares fell $5.75, or 22.61%, to close at $19.68 per share on June 1, 2022, on unusually heavy trading volume.
