On December 16, 2021, after the market closed, a “Threat Report” issued by Meta Platforms, Inc., which included the results of a months-long investigation into the “surveillance-for-hire industry,” revealed that Cognyte regularly targeted journalists, dissidents, critics of authoritarian regimes, families of opposition, and human rights activists around the world, without their knowledge, and collected intelligence on these people by manipulating them to reveal information and/or by compromising their devices and accounts, in violation of Facebook’s “multiple community standards and Terms of Service.” Specifically, the report stated that Cognyte “sells access to its platform which enables managing fake accounts across social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and VKontakte (VK), and other websites to social-engineer people and collect data.”
On this news, Cognyte’s stock price fell $1.96, or 10.3%, over the next two consecutive trading days to close at $17.01 per share on December 20, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
Then, on April 5, 2022, Cognyte issued its 2021 Annual Report, disclosing that the Company was forced to modify its solutions in response to the Threat Report, “which impacted the manner [its] customers [could] use these solutions.” Additionally, the Company missed analyst consensus estimates for the fourth quarter 2021 for non-GAAP earning per share and sales, and significantly undershot the midpoint of its guidance range by several millions of dollars.
On this news, Cognyte’s stock price fell $3.63, or 31.1%, to close at $8.03 per share on April 5, 2022.
Then, on June 28, 2022, Cognyte released its first quarter 2022 financial results, missing analyst estimates across the board, including a revenue decline of 25%.
On this news, Cognyte’s stock price fell $1.84, or 28.7%, to close at $4.58 per share on June 28, 2022, thereby injuring investors further.
