LEAD PLAINTIFF DEADLINE: JANUARY 29, 2024

CLASS PERIOD: JUNE 1, 2023 THROUGH NOVEMBER 16, 2023

DEFENDANTS’ ALLEGED MISCONDUCT

Throughout the Class Period (June 1, 2023 through November 18, 2023), Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) ChargePoint was experiencing higher component costs and supply overruns for first generation DC charging products; (2) as a result, ChargePoint was likely to incur impairment charges; (3) as a result of the foregoing, ChargePoint’s profitability would be adversely impacted; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about ChargePoint’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

The truth began to emerge after the market closed on September 6, 2023, when ChargePoint announced its second quarter 2023 financial results and revealed a “$28.0 million, or 19 percentage point, inventory impairment charge.” As a result, ChargePoint reported a second quarter GAAP gross margin of 1%, down from 17% in the prior year’s same quarter. On this news, the price of ChargePoint common stock declined $0.77 per share, or nearly 11%, from a close of $7.06 per share on September 6, 2023, to close at $6.29 per share on September 7, 2023

Then, on November 16, 2023, after the market closed, ChargePoint announced its preliminary third quarter 2023 financial results and revealed a $42 million “non-cash inventory impairment charge.” ChargePoint attributed the impairment charge to “product transitions” to “better align inventory with current demand,” resulting in an expected third quarter “GAAP gross margin of negative 23% to negative 21%.” Furthermore, ChargePoint reported preliminary revenue results had fallen to levels below expected. Finally, ChargePoint’s CEO and CFO were both replaced, effective immediately. On this news, the price of ChargePoint common stock declined $1.11 per share, or more than 35%, from a close of $7.06 per share on November 16, 2023, to close at $3.13 per share on November 17, 2023.

WHAT CAN I DO?

ChargePoint investors may, no later than January 29, 2024, move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff for the class, through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP encourages ChargePoint investors who have suffered significant losses to contact the firm directly to acquire more information. The class action complaint against ChargePoint, Khan v. ChargePoint Holdings, Inc., et al., Case No. 23-cv-06172, is filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

WHO CAN BE A LEAD PLAINTIFF?

A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation.
