CASE ALLEGATIONS: Sunlight Financial claims to be a point-of-sale (“POS”) financing platform that provides residential solar and home improvement contractors the ability to offer POS financing to their customers when purchasing residential solar systems or other home improvements.  Sunlight Financial became a publicly traded company in July 2021 via the business combination of Spartan Acquisition Corp. II, a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company – known as a “SPAC” or blank-check company – with Sunlight Financial LLC.

The Sunlight Financial class action lawsuit alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Sunlight Financial lacked effective underwriting and risk evaluation with respect to its contractor advance program; (ii) Sunlight Financial lacked the oversight and periodic monitoring systems necessary to timely detect bad debt associated with its contractor advance program; (iii) Sunlight Financial lacked effective internal controls over accounting and reporting of non-cash advance receivables; and (iv) as a result, Sunlight Financial would be forced to take a non-cash advance receivables impairment charge exceeding $30 million.

On September 28, 2022, Sunlight Financial disclosed that it would record a “non-cash advance receivables impairment charge of $30 million to $33 million during [Sunlight Financial]’s fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2022.”  Sunlight Financial explained that it “was informed of certain actions taken by one of its installer partners to address liquidity issues faced by the installer” which “would likely result in an inability of [Sunlight Financial] to collect on advances outstanding to such installer.”  Sunlight Financial also issued a press release withdrawing its full-year 2022 outlook.  On this news, the price of Sunlight Financial shares declined by more than 57%, damaging investors.

THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired Sunlight Financial securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Sunlight Financial 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 Sunlight Financial class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Sunlight Financial class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the Sunlight Financial class action lawsuit.
