UPSTART HOLDINGS, INC. SHAREHOLDERS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECOVER THEIR INVESTMENT LOSSES

Upstart Holdings, Inc.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased or acquired Upstart Holdings, Inc. (“Upstart” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: UPST) securities between March 18, 2021 and May 9, 2022, inclusive. The lawsuit seeks to recover Upstart shareholders’ investment losses.

Upstart is a cloud-based artificial intelligence (“AI”) lending platform.  The Company claims that “AI lending enables a superior loan product with improved economics that can be shared between consumers and lenders” And that Upstart “leverage[s] the power of AI to more accurately quantify the true risk of a loan.”  The Company recognizes revenue primarily from fees paid by banks.

Plaintiff alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class Period.  Specifically, Plaintiff alleges that: (1) Upstart’s AI model could not adequately account for macroeconomic factors such as interest rates that impact the market-clearing price for loans; (2) as a result, Upstart was experiencing negative impact on its conversion rate; and (3) as a result, the Company was reasonably likely to use its balance sheet to fund loans.

On May 9, 2022, after the market closed, Upstart announced its first quarter 2022 financial results in a press release.  Therein, the Company reduced its fiscal 2022 guidance, expecting revenue of approximately $1.25 billion and contribution margin of 48%.  During the related conference call, Upstart’s Chief Financial Officer cited “rising interest rates and rising consumer delinquencies [as] putting downward pressure on conversion.”

On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $43.52, or over 56%, to close at $33.61 per share on May 10, 2022.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 12, 2022. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
