Case Status:    ONGOING

Filing Date: September 21, 2015

According to the law firm press release, Liquid Holdings is a cloud-based technology and managed services provider to the global hedge fund and active trading markets. Liquid's solutions are delivered through the cloud in a SaaS model.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that : (1) that the Company was overstating its ability to generate customers; (2) that the Company’s business model was unsustainable; (3) that the financial condition of the Company’s main and largest customer (an investment entity known as QuantX Management, LLP (“QuantX”)) was deteriorating; (4) that, as a result, the Company’s financial results and operating metrics were overstated; (5) that, as such, the Company’s financial statements were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”); (6) that the Company lacked adequate internal controls; (7) and that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s financial statements and Defendants’ statements about Liquid Holding’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. Upon disclosure of these issues the Company’s securities declined sharply in value, thereby damaging investors.

Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on July 22, 2016.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
