Background on the Olo Inc. Securities Class Action
Olo, short for “online ordering”, is a New York-based company that develops and provides online ordering and delivery services for restaurants. On February 12, 2020, Olo announced its partnership with Subway Restaurants (“Subway”). This partnership was to enable Subway to handle online orders from third parties like DoorDash or Uber Eats.
The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or material omissions, which failed to disclose that: (i) Subway would be ending its relationship with Olo; (ii) Olo mislead investors as to the Company’s success by citing active location figures that included Subway locations that would soon stop using the Company’s services; (iii) the Company’s key business metric “Active Locations” could not continue to grow, despite defendants’ endorsement, due to the loss of Subway’s business.
On August 11, 2022, after the markets closed, the truth about the state of Olo’s relationship with Subway was revealed when the Company revealed that many Subway locations had begun to directly integrate with third-party marketplaces and the remaining locations would not be included in Olo’s active locations count in the fourth quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023. Olo then admitted and acknowledged that its previously undisclosed Subway departure had been known to insiders throughout the Class Period.
On this news, the price of Olo shares plummeted more than 36%, from a closing price of $12.99 per share on August 11, 2022, to a closing price of $8.26 per share on August 12, 2022. More than $480 million of shareholder value was erased.
