CASE ALLEGATIONS: Equinix describes itself as “the world’s digital infrastructure company” that owns data centers in most parts of the world and operates as a real estate investment trust.

The Equinix class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Equinix manipulated its financials to reduce operational expenses and boost Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”); (ii) Equinix oversold power capacity and did not warn of the risks associated with this practice; and (iii) Equinix lacked adequate internal controls.

The Equinix class action lawsuit further alleges that on March 20, 2024, Hindenburg Research released a report entitled “Equinix Exposed: Major Accounting Manipulation, Core Business Decay And Selling an AI Pipe Dream As Insiders Cashed Out Hundreds of Millions” that alleged Equinix manipulates its profit margin and AFFO by misclassifying typical expenses, or maintenance capital expenses (“CapEx”), as growth CapEx and that Equinix has relied on an undisclosed and highly risky approach to grow its revenue – overselling power capacity in the hope that customers will not use all of the power, which could result in facility outages and a failure to fulfill contractual obligations.  On this news, the price of Equinix stock fell, according to the complaint.

Then, on March 25, 2024, the complaint further alleges that Equinix revealed that “the Audit Committee of the company’s Board of Directors has commenced an independent investigation to review the matters referenced in a recent short seller report” and that Equinix “received a subpoena from the US. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California.”  On this news, the price of Equinix stock fell, according to the Equinix class action lawsuit.

THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired Equinix publicly traded securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Equinix class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Equinix class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Equinix class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the Equinix class action lawsuit.
