Fastly operates an edge cloud platform for processing, serving, and securing customer’s applications.  The edge cloud is a category of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (“IaaS”) that purportedly enables developers to build, secure, and deliver digital experiences. Fastly’s platform includes a Content Delivery Network (“CDN”), or a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers.  Content owners such as media companies and e-commerce vendors pay CDN operators to deliver their content to their end users.  Certain companies have adopted a “Multi-CDN” framework which combines multiple CDNs from various providers into one large global network.

According to the Complaint, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) contrary to its representations to investors, Fastly was in fact experiencing a significant deceleration in growth among its largest customers and was losing the increased market share it had gained as a result of the 2023 CDN consolidation trend; (ii) the foregoing issues were likely to have a material negative impact on the Company’s revenue growth; (iii) accordingly, the Company was unlikely to meet its own previously issued revenue guidance for FY 2024; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s financial position and/or prospects were overstated.

On May 1, 2024, Fastly announced its first quarter (“Q1”) 2024 financial results.  Despite earlier positive statements about Fastly’s performance and near-term business prospects, the Company reported revenue of only $133.52 million, missing consensus estimates by $0.35 million.  The Company also lowered its FY 2024 revenue guidance to a range of $555 million to $565 million, significantly below its previously issued FY 2024 revenue guidance of $580 million to $590 million, and likewise below consensus estimates of $584.62 million for the same period.

On this news, Fastly’s stock price fell $4.14 per share, or over 32%, to close at $8.79 per share on May 2, 2024.
