The complaint alleges Instacart made misleading statements and failed to disclose in its initial public offering (“IPO”) documents, which closed in Sept. 2023, that: (1) Instacart had overstated the extent to which online grocery shopping and delivery habits among consumers were accelerating; (2) Instacart had downplayed the extent of the competition that it faced in the online grocery shopping and delivery business; and (3) accordingly, Instacart overstated its post-IPO growth, business, and financial prospects.

Investors learned the truth beginning on Sept. 22, 2023, when the financial press reported on “lukewarm” analyst reports indicating Instacart would struggle from heavy competition.

Then, on Oct. 2, 2023, another analyst initiated coverage with a hold rating and reportedly said that it “‘ha[s] doubts that online grocery delivery adoption will continue to materially increase at a time when consumers are becoming increasingly cautious about spending’” and citing competition as a headwind to the company.

If you were an employee of CART during the period relevant to the class-action case, you may have valuable information that could be relevant to the lawsuit. Hagens Berman is one of the nation’s top whistleblower law firms, and has successfully represented many individuals who come forward with information regarding corporate malfeasance.

There are multiple law firms participating, do I need to contact all of them?

No, you do not need to contact all participating law firms. Generally, class-action lawsuits are consolidated into a single case to streamline the legal process, and attorneys from only a few law firms are selected to serve in a leadership role on the consolidated case. Hagens Berman has a proven track record of being appointed to leadership roles in complex, multidistrict litigation regarding investor fraud and other consumer rights issues, and your claim will be handled by attorneys who have helped secure approximately $325 billion in class-action settlements on behalf of individuals who have suffered due to corporate malfeasance and the wrongdoing of other powerful institutions

AM I ELIGIBLE?

What is the threshold amount to be eligible? What are “substantial” losses?

The threshold amount and the definition of "substantial" losses may vary depending on a number of factors specific to the case, including the size of the company, market cap, shares outstanding and who holds them and the damages alleged by the fraud. In general, to be eligible to participate in a class-action lawsuit, you must be able to demonstrate that you suffered financial losses as a result of the alleged wrongdoing and that your losses meet the criteria set by the court or law firm.
