The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of shareholders of UiPath Inc. who purchased common stock between April 21, 2021 and March 30, 2022.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) UiPath had enacted a widespread discounting program prior to the IPO, which had the effect of temporarily boosting the Company’s revenue and annualized renewal run-rate ("ARR") metrics, cannibalizing its future sales, eroding the Company’s margins, and increasing the risk of client churn; (b) UiPath’s actual total addressable market was not as large as portrayed by defendants, because many companies included in the market survey did not need the type of high-cost, high-functionality automation products offered by the Company; (c) UiPath was losing customers to Microsoft, ServiceNow, SAP, Salesforce, IBM, and other established enterprise software vendors that were building automation into their platforms; (d) UiPath was losing customers due to the increased availability of lowcode automation software offered by vendors, such as Microsoft’s Power Automate software, which were capable of addressing the majority of customer use cases at a fraction of the price of UiPath’s products and services; (e) UiPath was suffering from a loss of channel sales due to strained relationships with the Company’s partners as a result of increased competition between UiPath and these partners; and (f) as a result of (a)-(e) above, defendants’ statements during the Class Period regarding the Company’s business, operations, and key financial metrics such as revenues and ARR were materially false and misleading.
