Robbins Arroyo LLP: XPO Logistics, Inc. (XPO) Sued for Misleading Investors

April 3, 2019

SAN DIEGO & GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 3, 2019--Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP reminds purchasers of XPO Logistics (NYSE: XPO) that a class action complaint was filed against the company’s officers and directors for alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 between February 26, 2014 and December 12, 2018. XPO Logistics provides transportation and logistics services domestically and internationally.

XPO Accused of Dubious Tax Accounting To Cover Financial Strain

According to the complaint, XPO has grown from an aggressive mergers and acquisition strategy. Casting doubt as to the legitimacy of the company’s growth, on December 12, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management published a report asserting that XPO was covering financial irregularities, and that it had evidence to suggest XPO was utilizing dubious tax accounting methods and aggressive amortization assumptions amongst other factors to portray glowing ‘Non-GAAP’ results. By Spruce Point’s calculations, XPO’s acquisitions had “generated $73m of cumulative adjusted free cash flow in an expansionary economic period… [and is] indicative of a failed business strategy yielding a paltry 1.2% return on invested capital.” Following the publication of the Spruce Point report, XPO’s stock price fell $15.77, or 26.17%, to close at $44.50, and still trades significantly below its class period high.
