On February 13, 2024, at 4:05 p.m., Lyft issued a press release reporting its financial and operating results from the fourth quarter of 2023.  The press release stated that Lyft anticipated an “[a]djusted EBITDA margin expansion . . . of approximately 500 basis points year-over-year.”  In fact, Lyft only anticipated a 50-basis-point margin expansion.  Following Lyft’s misstatement, the Company’s stock priced surged from its closing price of $12.13 per share to a high of $20.25 per share in aftermarket trading.  On that same day, Lyft hosted a scheduled conference call to discuss the Company’s results, during which Chief Financial Officer Erin Brewer acknowledged and corrected the error in Lyft’s earnings release and clarified that the Company anticipated margin expansion of only 50 basis points, not 500.  The Company subsequently issued a corrected earnings release at 6:02 p.m. on that same day.

Following Lyft’s correction of its error, the Company’s stock price fell $0.27 per share, or 2.18%, to close at $12.13 per share, damaging investors on February 13, 2024.
