Investors are being called to examine potential securities fraud claims against Paycom (NYSE:) Software, Inc. following allegations of misleading financial health representations. The law firm Faruqi & Faruqi has announced an investigation into the company’s practices, particularly concerning its product Beti, which was launched in July 2021 as a self-service payroll management system.
The innovative Beti platform, while initially seen as a positive step in empowering employees to manage their payroll processes, appears to have had unintended negative consequences on Paycom’s overall service sales. During the Q3 earnings call on October 31, 2023, Paycom’s CFO, Craig Boelte, revealed that the financial results fell short of expectations due to Beti’s cannibalization of traditional service sales.
In light of these developments, Faruqi & Faruqi is currently probing into the possibility that Paycom may have provided investors with misleading information about its financial prospects. The firm is reminding investors who acquired Paycom stock between May 3 and November 1, 2023, of the approaching January 9, 2024 deadline to petition for lead plaintiff status in a federal class action lawsuit concerning these allegations.
The focus of the lawsuit is whether Paycom made false statements and projections about its revenue that did not fully account for Beti’s impact on sales of other services. Investors affected by these events are encouraged to consider their legal options as the deadline to apply for lead plaintiff status rapidly approaches.
