CASE ALLEGATIONS: Upstart is a cloud-based artificial intelligence (“AI”) lending platform. Upstart claims that “AI lending enables a superior loan product with improved economics that can be shared between consumers and lenders.” Moreover, Upstart “leverage[s] the power of AI to more accurately quantify the true risk of a loan.” Upstart recognizes revenue primarily from fees paid by banks.
The Upstart class action lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (i) Upstart’s AI model could not adequately account for macroeconomic factors such as interest rates that impact the market-clearing price for loans; (ii) as a result, Upstart was experiencing negative impact on its conversion rate; (iii) thus, Upstart was reasonably likely to use its balance sheet to fund loans; and (iv) consequently, defendants’ positive statements about Upstart’s business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Upstart securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.
