NEWTOWN, PA, February 20, 2024 — The law firm of Edelson Lechtzin LLP is investigating securities fraud claims on behalf of purchasers of Amplitude, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMPL) common stock between September 21, 2021, and February 16, 2022, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

Background on Amplitude, Inc.

Founded in 2014, and headquartered in San Francisco, Amplitude, Inc. is a publicly traded company that develops digital analytics software.

The Securities Fraud Claims

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or omissions regarding Amplitude’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) Amplitude’s land-and-expand strategy was years away from significantly accelerating revenues among its newer client cohorts; and (ii) the rapid acceleration in Amplitude’s second quarter or 2021 results resulted from ephemeral effects of the COVID-19 pandemic had ended by the start of the Class Period, and Amplitude clients were expanding at a slower pace.

On February 16, 2022, after the market closed, Amplitude announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2021 and revised its guidance for 2022 downwards. The most concerning aspect of the announcement was that the Company’s land-and-expand strategy, which Defendants had claimed was already performing well, was expected to take several years before it could accelerate results. Despite previous promises of sustainable growth, Amplitude management admitted that they did not know when the impact of the strategy would be felt.

On this news, the price of Amplitude common stock plunged. After closing at $41.61 per share on February 16, 2022, the stock dropped more than 58% – or $24.51 per share – to close at $17.10 per share on February 17, 2022, on unusually high trading volume of more than 20 million shares traded.
