or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing

PS@hbsslaw.com.

The investigation centers on whether Pluralsight’s and senior management’s statements about the Company’s sales execution abilities and growth prospects were accurate.

More specifically, on July 31, 2019 the Company and senior management conducted an investor conference call to discuss Q2 2019 financial results.  During earnings call, senior management blamed Pluralsight’s billings miss on poor sales execution and slow onboarding of new sales representatives.

Several analysts then lowered their price targets for Pluralsight shares.  One reportedly wrote in a note to clients “[w]e are surprised by the magnitude of the billings weakness and we expect the stock to be a show-me story until investors gain confidence in billings re-acceleration.”

This news drove the price of Pluralsight shares sharply lower during intraday trading on August 1, 2019.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses, the extent to which management may have misled investors about reasonable growth prospects, internal controls, and reasons for the recently-announced auditor change,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
