XPO CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT: BERNSTEIN LIEBHARD LLP ANNOUNCES THAT A SECURITIES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT HAS BEEN FILED AGAINST XPO LOGISTICS, INC. – XPO

December 20, 2018.

New York, New York—Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities of XPO Logistics, Inc. (“XPO” or the “Company”) (NYSE: XPO) between February 26, 2014 and December 12, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to recover XPO shareholders’ investment losses.

According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) XPO’s highly touted aggressive M&A strategy had yielded only minimal returns to the Company; (2) XPO was utilizing improper accounting practices to mask its true financial condition, including, inter alia, under-reporting of bad debts and aggressive amortization assumptions; and (3) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On December 12, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management (“Spruce Point”) published a report regarding XPO, entitled “Trucking Ridiculous; End of the Road.”  The Spruce Point report asserted that a “forensic investigation” into XPO had revealed, “financial irregularities that conveniently cover [the Company’s] growing financial strain and inability to complete additional acquisitions despite repeated promises.”  Spruce Point reported that it had uncovered, among other issues, “concrete evidence to suggest dubious tax accounting, under-reporting of bad debts, phantom income through unaccountable M&A earn-out liabilities, and aggressive amortization assumptions: all designed to portray glowing ‘Non-GAAP’ results.”  The Spruce Point report further stated that “XPO insiders have aggressively reduced their ownership interest in the Company since coming public, and recently enacted a new compensation structure tied to ‘Adjusted Cash Flow Per Share’—defined in such a non-standard way that it is practically meaningless.”  Spruce Point also reported that “[i]n our opinion, XPO has used a nearly identical playbook from [URI] leading up to its SEC investigation, executive felony convictions, and share price collapse.”

On this news, XPO’s stock fell $15.77 per share or approximately 26% to close at $44.50 per share on December 13, 2018, damaging investors.
