CASE ALLEGATIONS: LivePerson delivers mobile and online messaging solutions through Conversation Artificial Intelligence. In 2022, LivePerson completed its acquisition of WildHealth, Inc. which purports to “analyze [patients’] DNA, biometrics, and lifestyle activity to provide a blueprint for maximizing [patients’] health span.”
The LivePerson class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) LivePerson failed to address any material weaknesses with internal controls; (ii) LivePerson’s third quarter financial statements, ended in September 30, 2022, failed to disclose WildHealth’s suspension of Medicare reimbursement; and (iii) as a result, LivePerson’s fourth quarter 2022 revenue would be affected.
On February 28, 2023, LivePerson announced that it would be unable to timely file its annual report. LivePerson further revealed that Medicare reimbursement was suspended with respect to a recently discontinued WildHealth program. On this news, the price of LivePerson stock declined more than 14%.
Then, on March 6, 2023, LivePerson announced that a “review of WildHealth revenue is anticipated to affect fourth quarter 2022 revenue attributable to WildHealth’s participation in a Medicare demonstration program, due to suspension in November 2022 of Medicare reimbursements under the program and pending further governmental review.” On this news, the price of LivePerson stock declined further.
Finally, on March 16, 2023, LivePerson reported that “due to certain control deficiencies which aggregated to a material weakness in [LivePerson’s] internal control over financial reporting . . . [LivePerson’s] disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2022.” On this news, the price of LivePerson stock declined more than 57%, further damaging investors.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired LivePerson publicly traded securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff of the LivePerson class action lawsuit.

The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the LivePerson class action lawsuit. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the LivePerson class action lawsuit.
