On October 21, 2019, Infosys disclosed that it had received whistleblower complaints alleging “unethical practices” by the Company’s management to inappropriately boost short-term revenue and profit. Moreover, the complaints alleged that the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), Salil Parekh, bypassed reviews and approvals of large contracts to avoid accounting scrutiny.
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.28, or over 12%, to close at $9.29 per share on October 21, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company improperly recognized revenues to inflate short-term profits; (2) that the Company’s CEO, Salil Parekh, bypassed reviews and approvals for large deals to avoid accounting scrutiny; (3) that management pressured the Company’s finance team to hide information from auditors and the Company’s Board of Directors; and (4) that as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages. Follow us for updates on Twitter: twitter.com/FRC_LAW.
