Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have only until July 12, 2022 to file lead plaintiff applications in securities class action lawsuits against Upstart Holdings, Inc.

About the Lawsuits
Upstart and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. On May 9, 2022, post-market, the Company revealed its 1Q2022 financial results, disclosing a reduction to its fiscal 2022 guidance, expecting revenue of approximately $1.25 billion and contribution margin of 48% due to “rising interest rates and rising consumer delinquencies [as] putting downward pressure on conversion.” On this news, shares of Upstart fell $43.52, or 56%, to close at $33.61 per share on May 10, 2022.
The first-filed case is Ward v. Upstart Holdings, Inc., No. 22-cv-02856.
