Riskified Ltd. (NYSE: RSKD) Securities Class Action:

Riskified claimed that, as it grows its online merchant customer base, its machine learning platform gets more accurate and the company's risk of having to compensate its customers when the platform erroneously approves a fraudulent transaction that later is forcibly reversed ("chargeback expense") is minimized. Riskified's representations allowed the company to go public, raising over $422 million in gross proceeds through the IPO.

The complaint alleges Riskified didn't disclose the following in its IPO documents: (1) as Riskified expanded its user base the quality of its platform deteriorated due to inaccuracies in algorithms associated with onboarding new merchants and expanding into new geographies and industries; (2) Riskified expanded into industries (crypto and remittance businesses) with relatively high rates of fraud and, as a result, the effectiveness of its platform was negatively impacted; and, (3) as a result, Riskified suffered from materially higher chargeback expenses that negatively impacted its Q3 2021 financial performance.

During Riskified's Q2 2021 earnings call on Sept. 9, 2021, Defendants revealed the company tended "to experience higher chargebacks when we enter a new industry." During Riskified's Q3 2021 earnings call on Nov. 16, 2021, Riskified reported that its cost of revenues skyrocketed 44% year over year, blaming the sharp increase in chargeback expenses and growing customer base.

At the time of the filing of the complaint, Riskified shares traded below $6 per share, more than 70% below the IPO price.

"We're focused on investors' losses and proving Riskified's IPO documents omitted adverse facts regarding its risk management platform," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
