Maplebear Inc. d/b/a/ Instacart Inc. (NASDAQ: CART) Securities Class Action:

The complaint alleges Instacart made misleading statements and failed to disclose in its initial public offering (“IPO”) documents, which closed in Sept. 2023, that: (1) Instacart had overstated the extent to which online grocery shopping and delivery habits among consumers were accelerating; (2) Instacart had downplayed the extent of the competition that it faced in the online grocery shopping and delivery business; and (3) accordingly, Instacart overstated its post-IPO growth, business, and financial prospects.

Investors learned the truth beginning on Sept. 22, 2023, when the financial press reported on “lukewarm” analyst reports indicating Instacart would struggle from heavy competition.

Then, on Oct. 2, 2023, another analyst initiated coverage with a hold rating and reportedly said that it “‘ha[s] doubts that online grocery delivery adoption will continue to materially increase at a time when consumers are becoming increasingly cautious about spending’” and citing competition as a headwind to the company.
