What’s the Case About Kornit Digital Ltd.? (KRNT), Misrepresented its Business Prospects to Investors
According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants touted the purported competitive advantages provided by its technology and assured investors that it faced virtually no meaningful competition in the “direct-to-garment” printing market. The Company also claimed that there was strong demand in digital printing systems, consumable products, and the services Kornit provided to its customers to manage and maintain their digital printers as well as manage customer workflows.
In truth, Kornit and its senior executives knew or, at a minimum, recklessly disregarded, that the Company’s digital printing business was beset by significant quality control problems and deficient customer service. Kornit fell prey to competitors and lost the competitive advantages it promised investors. Those problems and deficiencies caused Kornit to lose market share to competitors, which led to a decline in the Company’s revenues, as Kornit’s dissatisfied customers sought out alternative options for their digital printing needs. Kornit also failed to disclose the fact that there were already risks to quality and customer service, despite the Company claiming to warn about them.
Kornit announced its financial results for 2022’s first quarter. It reported a net loss ($5.2 million) compared to a profit ($5.1 million) for 2021. Kornit also informed investors that it expected lower revenues and profitability for the second quarter in 2022. These disclosures and others caused the Kornit ordinary share price to fall by $18.78 per shared, or 33% to $37.63 per sharing on May 11, 2022.
Kornit then announced preliminary financial results, for the second quarter, on July 5, 2022. The Company revealed that it would have a significant revenue deficit in the second quarter. Kornit forecasted that revenue for the second quarter would be between $56.4 million and $59.4 million. That represented a reduction of more than 35% at the midpoint of Kornit’s previous revenue guidance of between $85 million and $95 million that the Company provided less than two months earlier. The price of Kornit ordinary stock shares fell by $8.10 or 25.7% to $23.46 per share on this news.
